IPL 2022 Qualifier 2: Dinesh Karthik reprimanded for breaching Code of Conduct

Ahead of the IPL 2022 Qualifier 2, RCB’s wicket-keeper batter Dinesh Karthik has been reprimanded for breaching the IPL Code of Conduct under Article 2.3 of the IPL Code of Conduct on May 25 during the Eliminator clash against LSG at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

Article 2.3 of the Level 1 offenses of the IPL Code of Conduct suggests the use of an audible obscenity during a fixture. This includes the usage of offensive words by a player in any language, which is audible to the spectators, and the audience through the stump mics, or otherwise.

“Mr. Karthik admitted to the Level 1 offense under Article 2.3 of the IPL Code of Conduct and accepted the sanction. For Level 1 breaches of the Code of Conduct, the match referee’s decision is final and binding,” the IPL said in a statement.

While batting in the first innings of the Eliminator clash against LSG, Karthik used offensive words out of frustration. The incident happened in the death overs when Rajat Patidar and Dinesh Karthik accelerated RCB’s innings by stitching a wonderful partnership. Karthik tried to move towards the left side trying to hit a wide ball to score some runs, but failed to do that & swung his bat in the air thereby missing a shot. He shouted out of frustration using some abusive words that were recorded by the stump mic.

RCB to face RR in the IPL 2022 Qualifier 2 on Friday

Coming to the match, RCB was able to knockout LSG by 14 runs in the Eliminator to move one step closer to the IPL 2022 Final. Rajat Patidar & Dinesh Karthik’s heroics with the bat helped RCB to post a target of 208 runs for LSG to chase. In reply, initially, it looked like LSG would possibly chase it as they got off to a good start but thanks to the lethal bowling spell by Harshal Patel, Hasaranga & Hazlewood, LSG was restricted to 193-6, falling short of the target by 14 runs.

RCB will now face RR in Qualifier 2 of the IPL 2022 on Friday at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
