New Delhi, April 22: Star batter Virat Kohli was on Monday fined half of his match fees for showing dissent towards umpire’s decision during Royal Challengers Bengaluru’s IPL match against Kolkata Knight Riders. Kohli was given out after the he was caught off a waist-height full-toss delivery Harshit Rana during RCB’s one-run loss to KKR at the Eden Garden’s on Sunday.
The Hawk-Eye system that measures no-balls for height came into play. The delivery, which seemed to be dipping on the batter, was just above the waist when he made contact with the ball.
The star batter, who made 18 off seven balls, was standing just outside the crease at that moment. TV umpire Michael Gough checked for the height and as per the Hawk-Eye tracking, the ball would have passed Kohli’s waist at a height of 0.92 meter had he was standing and upright at the crease.
Kohli left the field an agitated man after having an animated discussion with the on-field umpire.
The frustrated Kohli knocked the waste-bin located near away team dressing room in anger.
“Mr Virat Kohli, Batter, Royal Challengers Bengaluru has been fined 50 per cent of his match fees for breaching the IPL Code of Conduct during Match 36 of the TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata on April 21, 2024,” an IPL statement read.
Also, RCB skipper Faf Du Plessis has copped a Rs 12 lakh fine, while Punjab Kings captain has been penalised 50 per cent of his match fees for their respective offences, the IPL announced on Monday.
Du Plessis was fined for maintaining a slow over rate during RCB’s thrilling one-run loss to Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday.
Curran, on the other hand, was fined half of his match fees for a Level 1 offence under Article 2.8 of the IPL’s Code of Conduct which refers to “showing dissent at an umpire’s decision” during PBKS’ three-wicket loss to Gujarat Titans in Mullanpur on Sunday. (PTI)
