India beat New Zealand by 12 runs in the first ODI.
The second ODI will be played in Raipur on 21 January.
Raipur. The second ODI of the 3-match series between India and New Zealand is to be played in Raipur on Saturday, January 21. Even before the start of the second match, bad news has come for Team India. The Indian team has been fined heavily for slow over-rate against New Zealand in the first ODI in Hyderabad. Team India has been fined 60 percent of the match fee. Javagal Srinath of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees has imposed this fine. India have been found three overs behind in the overs to be bowled in the stipulated time in the opening ODI of the series on Wednesday.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) said in a statement, “The players’ match fees for each over that the team fails to bowl in the stipulated time in accordance with Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Support Personnel relating to breaches of minimum over-rate”. 20 percent (60 percent in three overs) was fined.
Indian captain Rohit Sharma has accepted the fine for the infringement, so an official hearing was not required. On-field umpires Anil Choudhary and Nitin Menon, third umpire KN Ananthapadmanabhan and fourth umpire Jayaraman Madangopal laid down the charges. In this match, India registered a 12-run victory thanks to Shubman Gill’s brilliant double century. With this victory, India has taken a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
At the age of 23 years and 132 days, Shubman Gill became the youngest player to score a double century in the history of ODI cricket. He left behind compatriot Ishan Kishan, who recently scored 210 against Bangladesh in December 2022.
