Gujarat Titans Won The Match But Hardik Got Major Problem After The Match

Skipper Hardik Pandya made a big mistake in the match against Punjab Kings. Of course, Gujarat won the match, but celebrating this victory was interrupted when Hardik was accused of violating the IPL code of conduct.

Under this, a fine of lakhs was imposed on him. Since this is the first mistake of the defending champions Titans in the current season, only Hardik Pandya has been fined instead of the entire team.

Due to the slow over rate, Hardik Pandya Fined was fined Rs 12 lakh. Gujarat registered their third win in IPL 2023 by defeating Punjab Kings by 6 wickets. With this victory, the Gujarat team got 6 points, reaching at number three in the points table.

Under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya, the Gujarat team is currently in a great rhythm. Young opener Shubman Gill is scoring runs continuously. The team’s experienced leg-spinner Rashid Khan has indicated that he is in excellent rhythm by taking a hat-trick against KKR.

Defending champion Gujarat Titans captain Hardik Pandya said that he would not want the victory to be registered so close after winning the match with one ball to spare. Gujarat achieved the target of 154 runs with one ball remaining. Pandya said that the players would learn from this match.

According to Pandya, ‘I will not praise the victory by reaching so close from the position (good) we were in. We will learn a lot from this match. The game’s beauty is that it ends at last over.”

If the Gujarat Titans team is caught in a slow over rate for the second time, the whole team can be fined. Hardik Pandya, i.e., the captain, can be banned for one match if he is caught in the slow over rate for the third time. In the press release issued by IPL, it was said that Hardik Pandya would be fined due to the slow over rate. So far in IPL 2023, apart from Pandya, Du Plessis and Sanju Samson have also been fined due to slow overrate.
