Indian player Shubman Gill will have to pay a 115 percent fine for his misconduct in the WTC final India vs Australia test match, where he was dismissed with a controversial catch.
After India lost to Australia in the World Test Championship (WTC) finals, players of Team India not only had to return empty-handed without the trophy but also without their WTC final match fee. Apart from this, India’s rising star in cricket Shubman Gill’s pay was docked an extra 15 percent due to his controversial dismissal.
While the players in India have been docked 100 percent of the test match fees, the fine stood at 115 percent for Shubman Gill for misconduct and weighing in on the controversial catch taken by Australian player Cameron Green. Gill was criticized for doubting the decision of the umpire.
Not only Team India and Shubman Gill, but the Australian team also docked 80 percent of their match play in the WTC final, despite winning the trophy, for maintaining a slow over-rate during the clash.
