BCCI Takes Action Against Hardik Pandya


After a thrilling encounter between Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Mumbai Indians (MI) in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has taken strict action against MI captain Hardik Pandya. Pandya has been fined a hefty sum of ₹12 lakh following a slow over rate offense committed by his team during the match against PBKS.

The slow over rate, a violation of the IPL Code of Conduct, nearly cost MI the match against PBKS. As a consequence of the slow over rate, MI was forced to keep only four fielders outside the inner ring during the last two overs of the match, instead of the usual five. The fine imposed on Pandya underscores the importance of maintaining the minimum over rate required by the IPL regulations.

This is MI’s first over rate offense of the season, leading to Pandya being fined ₹12 lakhs. Despite the tense moments during the match, Pandya showcased his leadership and composure during the crucial moments, contributing significantly to MI’s victory.

In the nail-biting encounter, Pandya held his nerve and delivered a crucial penultimate over, conceding only four runs and claiming the wicket of Harpreet Brar. However, the drama didn’t end there, as PBKS’ Kagiso Rabada kept the match alive with a six off the first ball of the final over.

Ultimately, MI emerged victorious by nine runs, securing their third win in their last four encounters. The match saw exceptional performances from both teams, with Ashutosh Sharma’s explosive innings for PBKS posing a significant challenge for MI.

As the IPL 2024 season progresses, fans can expect more intense matches and thrilling moments on the field. The action-packed encounters continue to captivate cricket enthusiasts worldwide, showcasing the unparalleled excitement and drama that the IPL is renowned for.
