In a recent Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 match between the Gujarat Titans and the Chennai Super Kings at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Gujarat Titans’ skipper, Shubman Gill, found himself at the center of attention for all the wrong reasons. Gill was penalized with a fine amounting to 25 percent of his match fees due to the team’s slow over rate during the match.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and IPL jointly issued a statement confirming the penalty, emphasizing that it was the team’s second offense of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct regarding minimum over rate violations. The severity of the infraction was reflected in the hefty fine imposed on Gill, totaling INR 24 lakh.

According to IPL regulations, the remaining members of the Playing XI, including the Impact Player, also faced individual fines. Each player was fined either INR 6 lakh or 25 percent of their respective match fees, depending on which amount was lesser.

Despite the disciplinary action against Gill, the Titans’ performance on the field showcased their formidable prowess. Gill, alongside B Sai Sudharsan, led an extraordinary assault on the Chennai Super Kings’ bowling attack, with both players scoring centuries. Their stellar batting display propelled the Gujarat Titans to a commanding 35-run victory over the Chennai Super Kings.

While the over rate penalty served as a setback, the Titans’ emphatic win kept their slim playoff chances alive, highlighting the team’s resilience and determination to succeed in the IPL 2024 season.
