Delhi Capitals skipper Rishabh Pant, coach Pravin Amre, and other members of the DC camp were involved in a controversy during their encounter against Rajasthan Royals at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. During the penultimate over, Delhi Capitals were on the receiving end of a harsh call as a waist-high full toss was not given a no-ball by the umpire. This decision was critical for the Delhi camp as this could’ve turned the game in their favour.
Rishabh Pant was clearly not happy with this call and even asked the on-field batters Powell and Kuldeep to come back. He even sent Assistant coach Pravin Amre onto the field to have a chat with the umpires. Nevertheless, the decision was not overturned and Delhi lost the encounter in the end by 15 runs.
Now, IPL issued an advisory wherein they have announced that Delhi Capitals captain, Rishabh Pant has been fined 100 per cent of his match fee for breaching the TATA Indian Premier League’s (IPL) Code of Conduct during his team’s match against Rajasthan Royals.
