IPL Fair Play Table:
In a country where people are madly in love with cricket, players perform with their sweat and blood. And to add to it, they get appreciated for it as well. IPL Fair Play Award is an ingredient of that appreciation. Also, it promotes a positive vibe throughout the tournament.
This award is being awarded based on points given by umpires to each team. So basically, during each match both of the teams are being observed by the two on-field umpires and the third umpire. Then, both teams are given points at the end of the match.
Eventually, the team that has the highest points at the end of the tournament win this award. These points are given based on many different categories, such as:
- To show sportsmanship spirit
- To not break any law
- To show respect to the opponent team
- To follow the game rules
- For maintaining a positive environment on the field
- To show respect towards the umpires
During each match, a team can earn a total of 10 points. And following is the points distribution for the IPL fair play award.
- 4 points for maintaining the spirit of the game
- 2 points for showing respect towards the opponents
- 2 points for respecting the laws of the game
- 2 points for respecting all of the umpires
Earning 2 points in the game means, the team performed ‘good.’ Whereas, earning a single point concludes the ‘average’ performance of the game. And lastly, zero points indicates ‘bad’ performance of the team.
