BCCI Punishes Rishabh Pant For Breaching IPL Code of Conduct

DC vs CSK, IPL 2024: Delhi Capitals (DC) skipper Rishabh Pant has been fined ₹12 lakh for breaching Indian Premier League (IPL) Code of Conduct during DC vs CSK IPL 2024 match. Pant-led Delhi Capitals (DC) defeated Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 20 runs to clinch their first win of the season on Sunday (March 31) at Visakhapatnam’s Dr Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium.

Indian Premier League (IPL) organisers said in a statement that Pant has been fined after Delhi Capitals maintained a slow over rate during IPL match against Ruturaj Gaikwad-led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on March 31. 

Check below what IPL organisers said on Rishabh Pant being fined:

“Rishabh Pant, the Delhi Capitals captain, has been fined after his team maintained a slow over rate during their TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 match against Chennai Super Kings at the Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam on March 31.”

“As it was his team’s first offence of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over rate offences, Pant was fined Rs 12 lakhs.”

Rishabh Pant return back to form

Rishabh Pant, after a string of low scores, staged a remarkable comeback by playing an aggressive innings against Chennai Super Kings. Pant capitalized on the foundation laid by DC openers David Warner and Prithvi Shaw, and propelled the Delhi Capitals’ innings forward.

Pant’s blistering knock of 51 runs off just 32 deliveries, laced up with four boundaries and three mega sixes, injected the much-needed momentum into the DC innings. 

The Delhi Capitals captain played a crucial role in guiding his team to successfully chase down the target of 191 runs, reaching it with 5 wickets in hand.

Despite the fine, Pant’s return to form and Delhi Capitals win over five-time IPL winners Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is a big positive sign. Delhi Capitals will next square off against Kolkata Knight Riders on April 3.
