Red Card in Cricket: First time used red card in cricket history, Umpire asked Sunil Narine to leave the field!
Cricket Time Now, CPL 2023: A novel approach has been taken in the ongoing Caribbean Premier League to reduce the slow over-rate in cricket. The red card came into cricket with the CPL.
In the style of football, the rule of red card was introduced earlier in cricket. It was called the cricket revolution. The card came out of his pocket this time. This is the first red card shown on the field in cricket in the ongoing Caribbean Premier League. Before the start of the season, the CPL authorities said that from this time there will be a red card penalty in the Caribbean Premier League. According to the new rules of the CPL, if the team fielding at the beginning of the 20th over is behind the scheduled time, then the umpire will send a player of that team out of the field by showing a red card. In the first 11 matches of the 11th season of the tournament, however, no team’s players were punished with red cards. In the 12th match, the umpire was forced to apply the red card. Sunil Narine saw the first time red card in cricket history. Find out more in this report from the Cricket Time Now Portal.

Trinbago Knight Riders became the first team to see a red card in the CPL. Sunil Narine became the first cricketer to leave the field in the middle of a CPL match after seeing a red card. Not only that, Narine has also become the first cricketer to see a red card in the history of cricket. Trinbago Knight Riders failed to complete the 20-over bowling in the allotted time against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the CPL. So before the start of the 20th over, the umpire showed Trinbago a red card for slow over-rate. According to the rules, whoever the captain tells at that time, he has to leave the field. Trinbago Knight Riders captain Kieron Pollard asked Sunil Narine to leave the field before the start of the 20th over. Of course, it wasn’t Narine’s fault. Narine had to leave the field due to the team’s mistakes.
