ENGvsIND: India and England charged 40 per cent match fee and 2 penalty points for slow over-rate.

ENGvsIND: In a very poor beginning to the new cycle of the ICC World Test Championship, ICC has imposed a 40 per cent match fee and 2 crucial Test Championship points from both India and England for maintaining a slow over-rate during the first test at Trent Bridge, Nottingham.

India and England were found two overs short of their allowed timing as match referee Chris Broad imposed sanctions on the two participating teams.

The sanctions were forced on the team as per the ICC Code of Conduct for Player and Player Support Personnel. As per article 2.22, each team is fined 20 per cent of their match fee for getting one over short of the given time.

There was no need for the formal hearing as both the skippers, Joe Root and Virat Kohli, accepted the proposed sanctions by match referee Chris Broad.

The first test match between India and England, which apparently was the beginning of the ICC World Test Championship 2021-23, ended in a draw as the rain played spoilsport.

Both the teams had a clear chance of winning on day 5, but not a single ball was bowled due to constant showers.

Both India and England moved to the Home of Cricket, Lords (London) for the second test, starting August 12.
