ICC blow to both India and England, ‘she’ made a mistake – News18 Lokmat

Mumbai, August 11: Both India and England have suffered a major setback ahead of the second Test at Lord’s. The slow over rate in the first Test in Nottingham has resulted in a 40 per cent cut in match fees between the two teams. Not only that, but both teams have been reduced by two points. So now both the teams have accumulated only 2 points instead of 4 at present. The game could not take place on the fifth day of the Nottingham Test due to rain. So this test was drawn. According to the new system of the World Test Championship, both teams will be awarded 4-4 points each after the match is drawn. But now India and England will get 2-2 points each. Both the teams were bowled 2-2 overs less than the allotted time. Therefore, match referee Chris Broad has taken this action. The case relates to a low over rate as per Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct made for players and support staff. This results in financial penalties for players who fail to complete overs in a timely manner. The rule provides for a 20 per cent reduction in match fees for each over. Also, as per the rules of ICC World Test Championship 16.11.2, there is a provision to reduce the team by one point for each short over. Both India and England were bowled out for two overs each. Therefore, their two points have been reduced.
