Mumbai fined for slow over-rate

Posted by James On 12:24 PM 0 comments

The IPL has fined Mumbai Indians for maintaining a slow over-rate during their win against Kings XI Punjab at the Brabourne Stadium on Tuesday. This was the second instance of Mumbai failing to bowl their full quota of overs within the stipulated time; in the event of a third offence, their captain Sachin Tendulkar could face a ban.

At the end of the match, Mumbai were assessed to be one over behind the required rate after allowances were taken into consideration. Tendulkar was fined US$40,000 while each of the other players in the team was penalised US$10,000.

Right through the tournament, the IPL has come down hard on captains for shoddy over-rates. After the first three games of the 2010 season, four captains - Sourav Ganguly, Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir and Sangakkara - were fined $20,000 each because their teams were not able to complete their overs on time. Sangakkara was subsequently banned for one game after Punjab were found guilty of not bowling their overs in time during their defeat at the hands of Kolkata Knight Riders, their third offence.
