New Delhi. BCCI has made many rules to run IPL matches smoothly. There is also a rule regarding slow over rate. Under this rule, heavy fines are imposed on captains.

After Rishabh Pant, Sanju Samson, Shubman Gill, now the new name of Hardik Pandya has been added. Pandya was found guilty of slow over rate in the match against Punjab Kings. What is slow over rate? How does this work. What punishment is given under this? People are curious to know about it.

Over rate is the average number of overs bowled by the fielding team in one hour of play. According to ICC rules, fielding teams are expected to maintain an average of 15 overs per hour in Test cricket, 14.28 overs in ODIs and 14.11 overs in T20.
