Rohit Sharma Fined Rs 12 Lakh, Could Face Ban

Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma has been fined Rs 12 lakh for a slow over-rate during the Indian Premier League game against Delhi Capitals in Chennai on Tuesday. In a statement released by the IPL, it mentions that it was Mumbai Indians’ first offence of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offences.

On the second instance during the season, the fine is doubled (Rs 24 lakh) for the captain while every other member playing XI is fined 25 per cent of the match fee or Rs 6 lakh – whichever is lesser. And if it happens for the third time, then the captain is banned for a match and the rest of the side would be fined Rs 12 lakh or 50 per cent of the match fee – whichever is lesser.

Earlier, CSK captain MS Dhoni faced the same problem after their season opener against Delhi Capitals.
