Red card for the first time in cricket due to slow over

Due to the slow over rate in cricket, the red card was shown for the first time. This card came in the Caribbean Premier T20 League. Actually, on Sunday there was a match between Trinbago Knight Riders and St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots. The first fielding riders team got the red card. The Riders bowled slow in the last three overs and the team was well behind the required over rate.

Because of this the umpire showed the red card to the team after the 19th over. Riders captain Pollard sent spinner Sunil Narine out of the ground in the last over. Then Naren had completed his 4 overs. In the last over, the team fielded with 10 players only.

What is the slow over rate rule of CPL?

  • If the team's over rate is less in the stipulated time before the start of the 18th over, then one of its players will have to come inside the 30 yard circle. Means total 5 players will be inside the circle instead of 4.
  • If the team is behind the over rate before the 19th over, then two of its players will have to come inside the 30 yard circle. Means then 4 not 6 players will be in 30 yard circle.
  • If the team is behind the over rate before the start of the 20th i.e. the last over, then one of its players will have to go out of the field. The player will be decided by the captain, as well as six of his players inside the 30 yard circle.
  • It is not that the rules in CPL are made only for the fielding team. The responsibility of getting the game done on time will also be on the batting teams. If the delay is from the side of the batting team, then they will be given the first and final warning by the umpire, after which they will be fined 5 runs.

    red card in 2005

    In international cricket, umpire Billy Bowden once showed a red card to Australian bowler Glenn McGrath for bowling an underarm ball in a T20 match against New Zealand in 2005.

    Kieron Pollard Called The Red Card Rule Ridiculous

    Knight Riders captain Pollard called the red card rule 'absolutely ridiculous' after the match. Pollard, changing his limited fielding options, asked Narine to leave the field, who completed his four-over spell with figures of 3/24.

    Pollard said after the match that to be honest, everyone's hard work will end with this. We are like pawns and we will do what we are told. We will play as fast as we can. If you get penalized for 30-45 seconds in a tournament like this, it is absolutely ridiculous.
