IPL 2024: Delhi Capitals got a big blow; captain Rishabh Pant suspended for one match, and a heavy fine also imposed


New Delhi. The Delhi Capitals have suffered a big setback in the IPL 2024. Team captain Rishabh Pant has been suspended for one match. He has also been fined Rs 30 lakh for slow over-rate.

committed the crime for the third time
This is not the first time that Delhi has been hit by slow over rate. This is the third time that Delhi has done this, and that is why Pant has been suspended; otherwise, he would have been fined only. While Pant has been fined heavily, the team players have also been fined. All the players of the team who were part of the playing-11 have been fined Rs 12 lakh or 50 percent of the match fee, whichever is less. This also includes impact players.

Delhi had appealed
To save Pant and the team, Delhi Capitals had appealed against this decision of the referee. But it was of no use. Delhi’s appeal was also sent to the BCCI Ombudsman. The Ombudsman held a hearing and then said that the match referee’s decision is final. The Delhi team is in the race for the playoffs and will have to win both its matches to go to the next round, but Pant’s absence in the next match is very bad news for this team. The Delhi team is currently in fifth place in the points table.
