Days after losing Andre Russell and Rovman Powell to injuries, the Jamaica Tallawahs have been charged for a slow over rate after their match against the Trinbago Knight Riders on Friday (13th September) at Sabina Park.
The charge of being one (1) over down was laid by the Match Officials Team against the captain of the Tallawahs, Chris Gayle.
This was the Tallawahs’ second Minimum Overs Breach of the tournament.
It follows the same charge being laid at the conclusion of Match 3 (September 6th) against the same opponents in Trinidad.
In that match, the applicable monetary fine was imposed on skipper Chris Gayle, and the team was also penalized with the 0.05 reduction in their net run-rate (NNR).
The fine and reduction in the NNR was also imposed for Match 10 on Friday.
Tallawahs who lost both home and away matches against TKR, are currently rooted to the bottom of the points table with just one win in five games.
