IPL 2017: Mumbai Indians (MI) skipper Rohit Sharma has been fined 50% of his match fee for showing dissent at an umpire’s decision during the match against Rising Pune Supergiant in Mumbai.
Match referee Javagal Srinath found Rohit guilty of a Level 1 offence under article 2.1.5 of the Code of Conduct. Rohit admitted to the offence, his second of the season, at the end of the match.
The incident happened during the final over of second innings. With 11 needed off four balls, Rohit shuffled across the stumps to RPS pacer Jaydev Unadkat, who bowled a slower delivery outside off-stump.
On seeing that the ball was well away from the guideline for wide delivery, Rohit bailed out of the shot. However, umpire S Ravi did not call it a wide and a shocked Rohit gesticulated animatedly and remonstrated with him before the square-leg umpire, A Nand Kishore, intervened.
