The KL Rahul-led team, Lucknow Super Giants, defeated Mumbai Indians for their fifth win of the IPL 2022 season. However, as a result of this triumph, Lucknow’s whole team, which had landed on the field, has been penalized. KL Rahul was fined for slow overrate performance and also the captain, as well as the rest of the members of the team.

For his poor and slow over-rate against Mumbai Indians, KL Rahul was fined Rs 24 lakh, while the rest of the playing team was fined Rs 6 lakh or 25% of their match money, whichever is less. Rahul, although, has been fined twice as much as the rest.

In fact, Rahul was fined Rs 12 lakh for sluggish over rate following the 26th match of the IPL against Mumbai Indians. Lucknow did this for the first time this season, which resulted in a punishment of Rs 12 lakh being levied on the captain, but for the second breach, Rahul now faces a fine of Rs 24 lakh.

“The Lucknow Super Giants have been penalized after keeping a sluggish tempo against the Mumbai Indians in match 37 of the TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Saturday. BCCI issued a statement via a news release.

After being trounced by Royal Challengers Bangalore a few days earlier, the Lucknow captain was fined 20% of the match cost. He received this punishment for breaking the match’s code of conduct.
