All-rounder Hardik Pandya’s misery in Indian Premier League continues as he was slapped a ban by the Board for Control of Cricket in India (BCCI).

Under his captaincy, Mumbai Indian were the first franchise to crash out from the ongoing IPL. That’s not it, the all-rounder received a setback even before teams could even start think about the next season.

BCCI late on Friday night announced Hardik would not be able to play the first match of next season as he was banned for maintaining a slow over rate in MI’s last match of this year against the Lucknow Super Giants.

“Hardik Pandya, the Mumbai Indians captain, has been fined after his team maintained a slow over rate during their TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 match against Lucknow Super Giants at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on May 17,” BCCI said.

They don’t have any more matches remaining in the tournament, so the ban will carry forward to the first match of the next season.

Pandya became the second player after Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant to get suspended due to over rate offense this year.

Moreover, he was also slapped with a ₹30 lakh fine while the MI players, including the Impact Player against LSG, were fined ₹12 Lakh or 50% of their respective match fees.
