Mumbai, April 25 – Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Virat Kohli has been fined Rs 12 lakh for his team’s slow over rate during their Indian Premier League (IPL) match against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Sunday.
“As it was his team’s first offence of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over rate offences, Mr Kohli was fined Rs 12 lakh,” said the IPL in a statement.
RCB’s unbeaten run was ended by CSK on Sunday at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday with all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja leading the three-time champions to a 69-run win.
Jadeja smashed 37 runs off the last over of CSK’s innings to finish unbeaten on 62 off just 28 balls and propel them to 191/4. He then recorded figures of 3/13, dismissing the dangerous AB de Villiers, Glenn Maxwell, and Washington Sundar.
