'Unprofessional' penalties stun World T20


//

Pakistan and Ireland have copped five-run penalties for running on the pitch at the Women's World Twenty20, with the Pakistani side gifting India 10 runs in total during a tight defeat.

Pakistan were warned at the end of the 13th over about running on the danger area of the pitch. On the first ball of the 18th over, Bismah Mahroof and Nida Dar took off on a single and after consulting, umpires Sue Redfern and Gregory Brathwaite imposed a five-run penalty and disallowed the single.

With Sidra Nawaz and Sana Mir batting on the final ball of the innings, another penalty was applied by Redfern after a quick single. The twin penalties meant that India began their inning on 0-10, chasing Pakistan's 7-133.

India passed the target of 134 with an over and seven wickets to spare, having been given a significant boost by Pakistan.

Pakistan captain Javeria Khan sought answers from the umpires after her team's innings and admitted that her players had erred.

"I had a chat [with the umpires]. They told me that after warning the players three times, they gave the penalties," Javeria said.

"It's unprofessional on our part because we were warned. It's not happened [for] the first time. It's happened in Sri Lanka as well."

India was warned about running on the pitch before its innings.

"We were told before getting in to bat that those 10 runs were because the Pakistan batters were running on the danger end and they were warned. So were we, but we didn't get to that point [where the umpires had to dock runs]. We were aware of it," India's top-scorer Mithali Raj (56) said.

Ireland were then docked five runs for running on the pitch as they posted a modest 6-93 against Australia, meaning the Aussies began on 0-5.
