Indian Team Fined 60% Of The Match Fees In The First Match Against New Zealand; Check Full Details

Indian cricket has been fined 60% of the match fees for a slow over-rate in the first ODI match of the three ODI match series against New Zealand at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Wednesday.

ICC match panel official Javagal Srinath said that the match referee fined the men in blue because they were three over behind the scheduled time of the match.

According to Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, they are fined 20 per cent of their match fees for every over-the-side bowl behind schedule.

Indian skipper Rohit Sharma accepted the charges applied by on-field umpires Anil Chaudhary and Nitin Menon, third umpire K. N. Ananthapadmanabhan and fourth umpire Jayaraman Madanagopal. So, there was no need for a formal hearing on this incident.

However, the Indian team won the opening encounter by 12 runs. Star Indian batter Shubhman Gill smashed 208 runs off 149 deliveries, which helped set the total at 349/8. New Zealand ended at 337/10 in 50 overs in the chase. Kiwi batter M. Bracewell played a blistering knock of 140 runs off 78 balls with 12 fours and 10 sixes.

Now, the Indian team is leading the series by 1-0, and the next clash will be at the Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Cricket Stadium in Raipur on Saturday, January 21.
