Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli has been fined Rs 12 lakh for maintaining a slow-over rate during the Indian Premier League match against Kings XI Punjab in Mohali.
“Royal Challengers Bangalore Captain Virat Kohli has been fined after his team maintained a slow over-rate during their Dream11 Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 match against Kings XI Punjab in Dubai on 24 September 2020. As it was his team’s first offence of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offences, Mr. Kohli was fined Rs 12 lakh,” read an official press release.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore captain was at fault on two occasions when he dropped catches of match-winner KL Rahul while also not contributing much with the bat. Kohli’s two drop catches proved costly as Rahul went on to slam a record-breaking hundred against RCB at the Dubai International Stadium. RCB eventually lost the match by a big margin of 97 runs.
Reacting to his lapses in the field, Kohli said he is ready to take the brunt front on.
