Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma has landed himself in a soup over to his reaction after being adjudged LBW during the T20 game against Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2017.
Rohit was not pleased with the umpire’s decision and showed his displeasure while walking back to the pavilion.
“Rohit Sharma, the Mumbai Indians captain, was reprimanded by the match referee for showing excessive, obvious disappointment with an Umpire’s decision during his team’s contest against the Kolkata Knight Riders at the Wankhede Stadium,” an IPL statement reads.
“Mr Sharma admitted to the Level 1 offence 2.1.5 of the IPL Code of Conduct for Players and Team Officials. “For Level 1 breaches of the IPL Code of Conduct, the Match Referee’s decision is final and binding,” it added.
