Ashwin fined for slow over-rate

New Delhi, Apr 21 (IANS) | Publish Date: 4/21/2019 12:21:34 PM IST

Kings XI Punjab captain R. Ashwin was fined after his team maintained a slow over-rate during their five-wicket loss to Delhi Capitals in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Feroz Shah Kotla on Saturday.

As it was his team’s first offence of the season, Ashwin was fined Rs 12 lakh.

Saturday’s game saw Punjab face their third loss in their last four games. Put in to bat first, KXIP posted 163/7 in their stipulated quota of 20 overs before the Capitals chased it down with two balls to spare, riding on the half-centuries from Shikhar Dhawan (56) and skipper Shreyas Iyer (58*).

The game, though, ended just seven minutes before midnight.

Mumbai Indian’s Rohit Sharma, Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Virat Kohli and Rajasthan Royals’ recently-sacked captain Ajinkya Rahane are the other captains who have been fined for similar offence earlier.
