Apart from Gill, both India and Australia cricket teams have also been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate in the WTC final at The Oval in London.

The sanctions were imposed by Richie Richardson of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees after India were adjudged to be five overs short of the target, taking into account the time allowance, while Australia were found to be four overs short.
Ricky Ponting and Justin Langer have come under fire for posting a controversial tweet about the dismissal of Shubman Gill. Former Australia coach Justin Langer said on Channel 7, “One of the challenges for a modern cricketer now is that there is too much social media.” “I think Gill’s tweet is a bit irresponsible, shows some inexperience. This is the world we live in with social media.”
Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting said Gill’s tweet was a direct attack on the umpires and he could face fines or even suspension for his social media posts. “Definitely something is going to come of it. There could be some kind of fine or even suspension,” Ponting said.
When a player reaches four or more demerit points within a 24-month period, they are converted into suspension points and a player is banned. Two suspension points equates to a ban from one Test or two ODIs or two T20 Internationals, whichever comes first for the player.
Demerit points shall remain on a player’s or player support personnel’s disciplinary record for a period of twenty-four (24) months from the date of their imposition, after which they shall be terminated.
