Three IPL players were fined or deducted from their match fees during a stormy cricket match between Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday, April 16 in the Indian Premier League. MI captain Suryakumar Yadav, KKR captain Nitish Rana and Mumbai monster Hrithik Shokeen all faced the wrath of the referee on Sunday.
Caretaker captain in the absence of Rohit Sharma (impact player), Suryakumar Yadav could not handle excess and committed overtax offenses which resulted in him being fined Rs. 12 Lakh by the referee.
Kolkata Knight Riders captain Nitish Rana was fined 25% of the match fee for violating the IPL code of conduct in the first leg of the game in which he got into an altercation with Hrithik Shokeen.
Rana and Shokeen are teammates at India’s home track in Delhi and speculation is that the IPL crash was a flop of their time in Delhi. Shokeen and Rana got into a verbal altercation in the ninth inning of the game when the bowler fired and fired the KKR captain. Rana didn’t take the gesture well and threw himself a bit before the mixed players on the court pushed the two away. The injury allowed a Stage 1 offense under Section 2.21 of the IPL Code of Conduct.
Bowler Hrithik Shokeen of the Mumbai Indians had fined 10 percent upon pleading guilty to a Stage 1 misdemeanor under Article 2.5 of the IPL Code of Conduct.
Mumbai Indians won the game with 5 wickets in hand thanks to aggressive starts from Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma. Mumbai was calm and collected in the 186-round chase, hitting the target with the remaining 14 balls. Read Also: Arjun Tendulkar sets a historical record in IPL history with his father
