Double Whammy! After Shameful Loss, Team India Fined 10% Of Their Match Fee For Slow Over-Rate At Centurion

Published

on

Team India’s problems have only compounded after the crushing innings loss to South Africa in the opening Test at the Supersport Park in Centurion. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has now sanctioned Rohit Sharma and co. 10% of their match fee after finding them two overs short and have also lost two points in the World Test Championship (WTC).

ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees Chris Broad imposed the sanctions after India fell 2 overs short of the required target. According to Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, players cop a 5% fine every time they fail to bowl the required overs in the allotted time.

Rohit Sharma and co. have now slipped to No.5 in the points table with 16 points from 3 Tests following a crushing innings and 32-run loss in Centurion.

India add uncapped speedster to squad for 2nd and final Test:

Ahead of the 2nd and final Test at Newlands in Cape Town, starting on January 3rd, the management has added Avesh Khan to the squad as Mohammed Shami’s replacement. Avesh played an integral role in helping the tourists secure an ODI series victory before the red-ball leg, taking 6 wickets in 3 matches at 19.17.

Having impressive numbers in first-class cricket, Avesh could replace Prasidh Krishna in Cape Town, given the latter had a disappointing outing at Centurion. Despite the win in Cape Town, South Africa will remain India’s final frontier.

In a move that has captivated football enthusiasts worldwide, Kylian Mbappe has officially transferred from Paris Saint-Germain to Real Madrid as of Tuesday.

This long-anticipated switch concludes months of speculation and excitement among fans.

Real Madrid’s Exciting Acquisition

Real Madrid announced on Monday that they had secured a deal with the French superstar for the next five seasons, merging one of football’s brightest talents with its most illustrious club.

This deal follows years of interest from Madrid, eager to bring in the player seen as the heir to Lionel Messi’s throne in the sport.

Aside from his substantial salary, Mbappe will enjoy a private luxury suite at Real Madrid’s training facility and will sport the iconic No.9 jersey, previously worn by legendary striker Karim Benzema.

Mbappe’s Stellar PSG Legacy

Mbappe joined PSG from Monaco in 2017 for €180 million and has since become the club’s all-time leading scorer.

Throughout his seven-year tenure in Paris, he consistently demonstrated his scoring prowess, netting at least 30 goals in six of those seasons.
