Mumbai Indians Captain Rohit Sharma was fined a whopping 12 lakh for maintaining a slow over-rate in yesterday’s clash against Delhi capitals.
Delhi capitals experienced spinner Amit Mishra spun his spin web around the Mumbai Indians batsmen to restrict them to a below average total of 137 runs for 9. Amit Mishra sclaped 4 wickets by conceding just 24 runs. As a result Delhi Capitals easily chased the meagre target with five balls to spare on Tuesday.
“Mumbai Indians Captain Rohit Sharma has been fined after MI team maintained a slow over-rate during their IPL 2021 clash against Delhi Capitals at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on April 20,” the IPL said in a statement.
“As it was MI’s first offence of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to a minimum over-rate offences, Rohit Sharma was fined Rs 12 lakh”, the IPL official statement added.
