Shubman Gill fined for slow-over rate during CSK vs GT match

Gujarat Titans (GT) faced off against the defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at Chepauk in their second match of IPL 2024. Despite Gill’s new role as captain, GT could not stop CSK from registering their second consecutive win of the season.

Gill, 24, took over the captaincy duties from Hardik Pandya, who led Gujarat Titans to their maiden IPL title in 2022 and finished as runners-up in 2023 before moving to Mumbai Indians this season.

GT also found themselves on the wrong side of the IPL’s Code of Conduct as their captain, Gill, was fined due to the team’s slow over rate during the match held on March 26. He was handed a fine of INR 12 lakhs. The incident marked their first offense of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct regarding minimum over-rate offenses.
