International Cricket Council match referee Chris Broad imposed the ban and fined Holder 60 percent of his match fee after the West Indies were found to be three overs short of their target.

The rest of the West Indies players were fined 30 percent of their match fee from the innings and 67-run loss in the first Test.

The tourists folded for 134 runs on day one in their loss to New Zealand.

Broad said that because Holder had previously been found guilty of a minor over-rate offence during a Test against Pakistan at Jamaica in April, the second breach within 12 months triggered a certain suspension.

The second test starts Saturday in Hamilton.
