IPL Players Fined for Inappropriate Behaviour

Ambati Rayudu and Harshal PatelTwo Indian Premier League Match players have been penalised for breaking the IPL’s code of conduct during an Indian Premier League Match at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium yesterday.

A serious confrontation erupted after the match had finished between Mumbai Indian player.

Patel has been admonished and charged 25% of his match fee whilst Rayudu was charged 100% of his earnings for the quarrel which saw him commit the level 2 offence of IPL code of conduct Article 2.2.8.  In the meantime, following Rayudu’s comments, Patel has been reproached for committing a Level 1 offence in Article 2.1.8 of IPL code of conduct by responding violently and dishonouring the game.

The incident occurred whilst the Mumbai Indians were rejoicing in their five wicket win  over the Royal Challenger Bangalores. The Royal Challenger Bangalore Captain Virat Kohli  had to restrain Patel from attacking  Rayudu after he is purported to said something about him that infuriated him.

Both players accepted their guilt and the hassle of the punishments levied.  Another offence was committed during the cricket match by Mumbai Indians Captain Harbhajan Singh, who received a financial penalty for his slow over rate at this match.  Due to this being his first game violation of the season, he was fined US$20,000 according to IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over rate offences.

After the match was over and everything had been deliberated, the Mumbai Indians were judged to be behind the mandatory rate by one over.
