IPL 2021: Rajasthan Royals skipper Sanju Samson may get BANNED due to this reason – Details inside
After facing a humiliating 33-run defeat against Delhi Capitals on Saturday (September 25) in their IPL 2021 clash at the UAE, Rajasthan Royals skipper Sanju Samson must be an happy man as he was also fined Rs 24 lakhs for slow over rate during the match.
An official statement was released in this regard, which read: “The Rajasthan Royals have been fined after they maintained a slow over rate during their VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 match against Delhi Capitals at the Zayed Cricket Stadium, Abu Dhabi on September 25. As it was the team’s second offence of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over rate offences, Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson was fined Rs 24 lakhs. The rest of the members of the playing XI were each fined lesser of either Rs 6 lakhs or 25 percent of their individual match fee.”
It is to be noted that this was the second match when Rajasthan Royals failed to maintain the required over rate. Earlier, during the match against Punjab Kings, which the Royals won by two runs, Samson was fined Rs 12 lakh for slow over rate.
Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals must keep this in mind as a slow over rate in the third match would lead to a one-match ban for their skipper Sanju Samson, who is without doubt the best bastman in the side.
As per the official rules on minimum over rate requirements: “The third and each subsequent offence in a Season as Captain of the bowling Team, the Captain will be fined Rs. 30 lakh and banned from playing in the Team’s next League Match.”
