IPL 2024: Shubman Gill Penalized Rs. 12 Lakh for Slow Over Rate Against CSK

Gujarat Titans skipper Shubman Gill found himself in hot water as he was fined Rs. 12 lakh for maintaining a slow over-rate during their recent Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 clash against Chennai Super Kings. The IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offences was invoked against Gill’s team for the first time this season, resulting in a hefty fine.

An official statement from the IPL confirmed the penalty, stating, “As it was his team’s first offence of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to a minimum over rate offences, Gill was fined Rs. 12 lakhs.”

The fine comes on the heels of Gujarat Titans’ first defeat in this year’s IPL, where they suffered a 63-run loss to defending champions Chennai Super Kings. Despite a victorious start to the season, with a six-run win over Mumbai Indians in their opening match, Gill’s team couldn’t maintain their winning momentum against the formidable Chennai side.

What makes this penalty noteworthy is that Shubman Gill, in his maiden stint as captain of an IPL franchise, has become the first skipper to be fined for a slow over-rate in the IPL 2024 season. The Rs. 12 lakh fine serves as a reminder of the league’s strict adherence to regulations, ensuring fair play and timely completion of matches.

The incident underscores the importance of teams adhering to the prescribed overrates to avoid sanctions that could potentially impact their campaign. As the IPL 2024 season progresses, captains and teams will be under increased scrutiny to uphold the standards set forth by the tournament organizers.
