After losing at first, the team was fined Rs 12 lakh. In fact, this fine was imposed on this captain Rohit due to Mumbai’s bowlers’ slow over rate in the match against Delhi.
The Mumbai Indians were fined for having a slow over-rate during their match against the Delhi Capitals on March 27 at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai, according to the IPL management. Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma has been fined Rs 12 lakh for the team’s first mistake involving over-rate.
What does it mean to have a slow over rate?
The average number of overs bowled by the bowling side in an hour is known as the over rate. In ODIs and T20 matches, 14.1 overs must be bowled in an hour, and 14.2 overs in Tests, according to ICC rules. In one-day internationals, the bowling side is given 3.5 hours to bowl 50 overs. Simultaneously, in a T20 match, the team must complete an innings in one hour and 25 minutes, or throw its 20-over quota.
