Alastair Cook is facing a suspension if England is found guilty of a slow over-rate following the third one-day international in Sri Lanka.

England won by five wickets in Hambantota, but Sri Lanka's 35 overs went more than 20 minutes over time.

Cook was fined for a similar offence after a one-day game against India in August, and told he would be banned for any repeat within 12 months.

ICC match referee David Boon will decide whether to apply a ban, although he could spare the England captain depending on how much time was lost for reasons outside his control.
