Kaalai skipper also docked 100 per cent of his match fee
Match Referee of the India Cements Ltd TNPL 2017 Eliminator at the NPR College Ground, Natham on August 16 charged Karaikudi Kaalai for a slow over rate. Captain S Badrinath was charged 100 per cent and a one-match ban, while the rest of the team was charged 50 per cent each of their match fees. This was the team’s third over-rate offence of the season.
Badrinath was earlier docked 20 per cent and the team 10 per cent each of their match fees for an over-rate offence during Karaikudi Kaalai’s game on August 7. Further, Badrinath was also fined 10 per cent of his match fee for the same offence during his team’s game on July 23. Since Karaikudi Kaalai’s season has concluded team’s third offence, the ban on Badrinath will be carried forward and will be in effect next season.
