IND vs NZ: ICC fined Indian team, KL Rahul made this big mistake

India won the final match of the 5-match T20 series played at Bay Oval of Mount Mongunui on Sunday, but ICC had fined the Indian team heavily. Although Rohit Sharma was made the captain, this responsibility was handed over to Rahul during the New Zealand innings.

Captaining for the first time, KL Rahul could not complete 20 overs by the given time. Because of this reason ICC fined 20% of the match fees due to slow over-rate.

At the same time, the Indian team has been fined for the second consecutive match due to a slow over-rate. In the fourth match of the series, the Indian team was fined even more. Team India was fined 40% of the match fees for the match that went to Super over.
It is worth mentioning that Kohli was at rest for the final T20 match. In such a situation, the vice-captain Rohit Sharma had to take the responsibility of captaincy. However, he was injured while batting. For this reason, Rahul was appointed as the stand-in captain.

India created history by clean sweeping the Kiwi team in the 5 match series. India has become the first team ever to win 5-0 in a 5-match series. It was also India's first series win in New Zealand.
