Cricket News IPL 2021 MS Dhoni Fined For Slow Over-rate
Chennai Super Kings have started their IPL 2021 campaign with a loss over Delhi Capitals at Wankhede stadium in Mumbai. To make things worse, the captain MS Dhoni has been fined a huge amount of 12 lakhs for his team due to a slow over-rate. “As it was his team’s first offence of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offences, Mr Dhoni was fined Rs 12 lakh,” an IPL media release stated.

This was his first offence in IPL 2021 and if it is repeated again then he will be fined Rs 24 lakhs. However, for the third time, he will not only be fined Rs 30 lakhs, but also be banned for one IPL game too. “As a measure to control the match timings, the 20th over in each innings is now included in 90 minutes, earlier the 20th over was to start on or before the 90th minute. The minimum over rate to be achieved in IPL Matches shall be 14.11 overs per hour (ignoring the time taken by time-outs),” revealed a BCCI rule as quoted by Cricbuzz
CSK managed to post 188 runs on board for 7 wickets in their allotted 20 overs but failed to restrict the opponent as Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw laid the winning foundation for Delhi with their quick-fire fifties to help the last year’s finalist chase down the total in the penultimate over of the innings for the loss of only three wickets as well. On the other hand, MS Dhoni, was not happy as the dew made things hard for them. “You have to look ahead. Especially when you have dew in your mind and you are batting first, you want to get those extra 10-15 runs – that was normally in 8pm start games. [Now the] 7.30 start means the opposition will have at least half an hour when there will be very little amount of dew on the field, which means it will not come on as nicely as it will in the second innings. So you have to score those 15-20 extra runs to make it even, and after that also you have to get early wickets to make a big mark on the game,” MS Dhoni said at the post-match presentation. CSK will next play against Punjab Kings in their next match on Friday at the same venue as well.
