As a setback for England and India, the International Cricket Council (ICC) imposed a 40 per cent penalty on their match fee for the slow rate in the first Test on Wednesday. Moreover, the Cricket Test Championship (WTC) has slashed two points from the dual teams in the 2021-23 points list. However, even after this cut, India tops the point list, while England is in second place. Because this is the first match of the second phase of the WTC. Immediately after the ICC fined both teams, the fans became angry at the ICC over the rules of cricket and began to give a lot of advice.
IND vs ENG: After the draw begins, who will now be the winner of the Test series, know Michael Holding’s answer
See the fan reaction here-
When you have a total of 250 overs in the test, you are penalized with a slower run rate. Awesome! Incredible. And when the outcome is formal, what about the 8 factors that a team lost in the rain? Please look at the rules once again and especially the 6th reserve day.

This is not the first time … Australia failed to qualify for last WTC final with only 2 point penalty.

What’s our problem?
It was all rain .. How can any team maintain that good over rate in that situation?
Is the ICC out of their minds ???
Are you going bankrupt! ????

These four key Pakistani players, including Babar Azam-Shaheen Afridi, want to increase the match fee
Let me tell you that the first match of the Test series between the two countries is drawn by rain. By the end of the fourth day, India were ahead to win the match, but on the last day of the match, the rain turned the innings at the will of Indian fans. On the last day, the team needed just 157 runs to win and nine wickets. But here God approves of something else. Due to the rain here, not even a ball could be thrown, and the umpires decided to draw the match. The next Test of the series will be held at Lord’s Ground from August 12th.
