Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma has recently been fined 15 percent of his match fee for hitting the stumps with his bat after his dismissal during their IPL match against Kolkata Knight Riders here.
Expressing his frustration after being given out leg before wicket, the batsman hit the stumps with his bat at the non-striker’s end, violating the Indian Premier League’s code of conduct at the Eden Gardens on Sunday night.
While the umpire had no hesitation in ruling the batsman out, Rohit opted for DRS, which upheld the field official’s decision.
Rohit admitted to the Level 1 offence 2.2 of the IPL’s code of conduct and accepted the sanction.
“Mr. Sharma admitted to the Level 1 offence 2.2 of the IPL’s Code of Conduct and accepted the sanction,” an IPL release said.
