Chennai Super Kings will face Punjab Kings in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 tonight. CSK lost their first match against Delhi Capitals under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. In this match, Delhi defeated CSK by 7 wickets, and CSK was fined for a slow over-rate. Dhoni was forced to pay 12 lakh rupees as a result of this.
In the match against Punjab, Dhoni would have to be careful. If they bowl slowly in this match, they may be suspended for the rest of the season. After missing IPL 2020, MS Dhoni will return in IPL 2021. Since the IPL 2020, he has not participated in any professional cricket tournaments. His IPL 2020 season was a disaster, and his team failed to qualify for the playoffs.
The BCCI had mandated that every team finish an innings within one hour and 30 minutes before the start of the IPL 2021 season (one and half hour). This ensured that the bowling team only took an hour and a half to bowl 20 overs.
If the same error is made again in the second match, the penalty will be increased to 24 lakhs, according to the rules. If this error is made for the third time in a row, the team’s captain will be suspended for one match. A fine of Rs. 30 lakhs will also be imposed on the captain. The remaining members of the squad will have to pay a fine of Rs 12 lakh or a 50% match bonus. The match referee determines the time limit for tossing 20 overs in the IPL. Rule 12.7.3 is used to ensure that a captain should not receive incorrect fines.
