Rohit fined 50 per cent of match fee
Mumbai, 4/26
Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma has been
fined 50 per cent of his match fee for
showing dissent at an umpire’s decision
during their IPL encounter against Rising
Pune Supergiant here.
The incident happened at the Wankhede Stadium
last night when Mumbai needed 17 in the last
over bowled by Jaydev Unadkat 5 while chasing
161 for win.
In the first delivery, Ben Stokes took a
brilliant catch in the deep to pack off
Hardik Pandya, while the second was heaved
over long-on for a six by Rohit.
Having seen Rohit shuffle across the stumps,
Unadkat pushed the third delivery of the over
wide and Rohit, realising that the ball was
veering away from the guideline for wide
deliveries, left it alone.
But umpire S Ravi didn’t call it a wide.
Disappointed with the decision, Rohit walked
up to the umpire and protested angrily even
as the square-leg umpire A Nand Kishore
intervened.
Needing 11 off three balls, Rohit skied the
fourth ball and was caught-and-bowled by
Unadkat for a 39-ball 58 as Mumbai went down
by three runs.
“Mr Sharma admitted to the Level 1 offence
2.1.5 of the IPL Code of Conduct for Players
and Team Officials. This is Mr Sharma’s
second Level 1 offence this season,” the IPL
release said.
“For Level 1 breaches of the IPL Code of
Conduct, the Match Referee’s decision is
final and binding.
