Kolkata: This season of IPL is not only known for the breaking of records by the players but also for the breaking of code of conduct. The latest entrant in the breaking of code of conduct is the Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma.
Rohit Sharma lost his calm that moment when he was given LBW in a high voltage match against KKR in which MI lost the match by 34 runs. He was fined 15 percent of his match fee for hitting the stumps with his bat after his dismissal during their IPL match against Kolkata Knight Riders.
Rohit admitted to the Level 1 offence 2.2 of the IPL’s code of conduct and accepted the sanction. Rohit has already been fined Rs 12 lakh for his team’s slow over-rate against Kings XI Punjab.
Apart from Rohit Sharma, Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni fined 50% of his match fees after coming onto the field from the dugout to argue with the umpires.
