Eng vs Ind 4th Test: This round has become such that the player has become a machine by being bound by the rules. The player cannot express his feelings. Can’t give any feedback. Whatever happens, it is immediately cut off. Something similar happened in the case of KL Rahul.
Eng vs. Ind 4th Test: KL Rahul missed fifty in the second innings
It seems that the strict rules of the game are turning players into machines. Neither the player can say nor do anything. And this is the reason that now KL Rahul’s pocket has also been cut. And he has been fined by the match referee for an incident on the third day of the fourth Test being played at Kennington Oval. Rahul has been fined for showing dissent to the umpire’s decision. The incident happened in the 34th over of the Indian innings on Saturday when he was dismissed by James Anderson after a DRS review. He thus violated Level One of the ICC (International Cricket Council) Code of Conduct. Rahul scored 46 runs in 101 balls. After the decision, Rahul expressed surprise at the decision.
According to the ICC release, ‘Rahul was found guilty of breaching Article 2.8 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Support Staff, which deals with showing dissent to the decision of umpires in an international match.’ In addition, one demerit point was also Rahul’s disciplinary. Added to the record, whose first violation in 24 months. Rahul has admitted the offense and accepted the fine proposed by Chris Broad of the ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees. Therefore, there was no need for an official hearing.
The charges were framed by on-field umpires Richard Illingworth and Alex Wharf, third umpire Michael Gough and fourth umpire Mike Burns. Level one violations result in a minimum penalty of an official reprimand and a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of the player’s fee and one or two demerit points, but KL Rahul has been fined 15 per cent of the match fee. This means that Rahul will have to pay a fine of one lakh eighty thousand rupees. Let us tell you that BCCI pays fifteen lakh rupees per test to the player playing each test match. At the same time, six lakh rupees are paid for ODIs and three lakh rupees for T20. This is the amount, which is different from the annual contract amount.
