Dinesh Karthik reprimanded for violating the IPL Code of Conduct

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik was fined for violating the Indian Premier League (IPL) code of conduct during his 2-team qualifier against Delhi Capitals in Sharjah on Wednesday. Karthik admitted to offense level 1, 2.2s  IPL Code of Conduct and has also accepted the sanction. For violations of level 1 of the Code of Conduct, the referee’s decision is final and binding.

Kolkata revised up 136 points in 19.5 overs after nearly squandering the solid foundation led by their openers in a challenging game. Of course, Sharjah Delhi grunts and grunts to post 135/5 under par and almost went out as Kolkata ran 96/0 in 12.1 overs, but then since then, Eoin Morganled’s team have lost six wickets to add to just seven runs, before Rahul Tripathi sealed the deal with a six-off Ashwin on the penultimate delivery of the match the contest turned on its head before. KKR were cruising at 123 for 1 in 15.5 overs but from there they suffered a stunning batting collapse, where Nitish Rana (13) was out in the 16th over, last ball, was followed by the  Gill four balls later. There was no panic in the KKR camp before Dinesh Kartik`s (0) dismissal in of the 18th over, final ball, sent alarm bells.

KKR needed only  10 runs from the last two overs but Anrich Nortje has removed KKR captain Eoin Morgan (0) in the 19th over, with the final ball, leaving KKR seven runs to get from the final over and  Shakib Al Hasan (0) and Sunil Narine (0) then crashed out on the third and fourth throws before Tripathi hit Ashwin with six points on the fifth, helping KKR secure a stunning win at the end.

This will be the  KKR’s 3rd appearance after winning the title in 2014 and 2012. They have just managed to sneak into the playoffs at the expense of five-time Indian defenders in Mumbai.
