Eoin Morgan Fined Rs 12 Lakh for Slow Over Rate in IPL 2021

Kolkata Knight Riders are not having a good time in the ongoing 14th edition of IPL. Shakib Al Hasan’s Kolkata team had to taste the hat trick late in the tournament. KKR captain Eoin Morgan has been fined Rs 122 Lakh for maintaining a slow over rate in the latest match against Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2021.

IPL authorities have fined Morgan Rs 12 lakh for a slow over-rate while bowling first after winning the toss against Chennai. This information has been informed in the official notification of IPL on Thursday (April 22).

The fine was imposed for slow overs in the 15th match of the IPL against Chennai Super Kings at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday (April 21), the release said.

This is captain Morgan’s first fine for the lowest over-rate offense in the current season. However, if the same offense is committed again, one match may be banned.

Kolkata lost the match against Chennai by 17 runs. They batted for 221 runs and scored 202 runs. Shakib Al Hasan was not included in the XI as he did not perform as expected in his first three matches in the tournament. Kolkata is at No. 6 in the table with just two points from three consecutive defeats in their four matches.
