DC assistant Coach and Captain to Fine for breaching the IPL Code of Conduct

Rishabh Pant, captain of Delhi Capitals, has been fined 100 percent of his match fee for breaking the Indian Premier League's (IPL) Code of Conduct during his team's match against Rajasthan Royals Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai, on Friday (April 22).

Pant admitted to the Level 2 offense under Article 2.7 of the IPL Code of Conduct and accepted the sanction.

Notably, Pant made headlines for calling back his batters after the umpires did not check for possible waist-high delivery in the final over of their IPL 2022 match against RR

Needing 36 runs from the final over, DC batter Rovman Powell hit three successive sixes from the first three deliveries off Obed McCoy. DC needed another 18 more from the last three deliveries.

At this point, Kuldeep Yadav, who was at the non-striker's end, gestured to the umpires demanding that the final delivery be checked for a possible no-ball on height. Roman Powell joined in having a chat with the umpires too. The umpires stood their ground, saying the delivery was legal.

Pant then gestured Powell and Kuldeep to come out though assistant coach Shane Watson tried to reason him out. Another DC coaching staff member Praveen Amre went into the playing arena but was told to go back by the umpires. The match resumed after a long delay, and DC lost by 15 runs.
