Let’s start with India’s unfortunate defeat on the final day of the WTC Final. They were up against an inspired Australian team, and the result was a devastating loss by a whopping 209 runs. Ouch! That has hurt. But wait, there’s more!

 

Right after the match, news broke that India would lose all their match fees due to their slow overrate. Talk about a double blow! Australia, too, didn’t escape unscathed. They were docked a hefty 80 percent of their match fees.

 

So, what exactly happened? Well, India was found to be five overs short of the target when time allowances were considered. And guess what? Australia was just a little behind. They were four overs short. Players face a 20 percent fine on their match fee for each over their team fails to bowl on time, as per Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct.

But wait, there’s more trouble brewing. India’s star opener, Shubman Gill, is facing even more punishment. He crossed a line by criticizing the decision to give him out on the fourth day of the test. According to Article 2.7, which deals with public criticism or inappropriate comments about incidents in international matches, that’s a big no-no.

 

So, what’s the verdict on Gill’s case? He’s been slapped with a 15 percent fine on top of his match fee. That means he’ll be shelling out some serious cash as punishment. He’s considering a total fine of 115 percent of his match fees.

 

Now, let’s talk about the catch that caused all this commotion. The television umpire, Richard Kettleborough, made a crucial call when he ruled that Cameron Green had taken a clean catch to dismiss Gill. But our young opener wasn’t too happy about it. Later in the day, he took to social media to vent his frustration and question the decision.

 

The fifth day of the match was a rollercoaster ride. Seven wickets fell before lunch, and India’s hopes of a miraculous comeback were crushed by disappointment. It was a bright and humid Sunday morning in south London, and things didn’t go their way.

 

An extra 15 minutes were tacked on at the end of the session to secure the final wicket. And who did the honors? None other than Nathan Lyon, who picked up the scalp of Mohammed Siraj. Australia sealed the deal with that wicket and clinched the highly coveted World Test Championship title.

 

The ICC has spoken, and fines have been doled out like there’s no tomorrow. India and Australia have felt the sting of the consequences of their slow over rates. And poor Shubman Gill is learning a hard lesson about criticizing decisions in the public eye. It was a dramatic finale to the WTC, and the fallout continues. Let’s hope everyone learns from their mistakes and gets back on track soon.
