Team India faced a setback in the Centurion Test against South Africa, and things got worse. Not only did they lose the match by an innings and 32 runs, but they also got a penalty of 2 points and a fine of 10% of their match fee from the International Cricket Council (ICC).

India “World Test Championship” Standings came down.

The ICC penalized India because they didn’t bowl the required number of overs during the Test. According to the ICC rules (Article 2.22 of the Code of Conduct), teams get fined 5% of their match fee for each over they miss.

As a result, India, who were initially at No. 5 with 16 points and a points percentage of 44.44, dropped to the 6th position below Australia after losing points, now having 14 points and a points percentage of 38.89.

India’s slow over-rate added to their troubles after a not-so-great performance in the Test. Captain Rohit Sharma admitted, “We were not good enough to win,” and pointed out that the team didn’t adapt well to the conditions, both with the bat and the ball.

Rohit expressed his disappointment, saying, “If we want to win Test matches, we need to come together as a team, and we didn’t do that.” The captain stressed the importance of better adaptability, especially in understanding the strengths of the opposition.

The slow-over rate penalty, along with the loss, creates a tough situation for Team India in the ongoing World Test Championship. Despite KL Rahul’s good batting, the team has a big challenge to bounce back in the series and improve their position in the points table.

The next Test against South Africa is crucial for India to fix their mistakes, not only in performance but also in keeping up with the required over-rate. They need to work hard to improve their standing in the World Test Championship.
