Opener Jos Buttler struck his third century of the ongoing IPL to power Rajasthan Royals to a 15-run win over Delhi Capitals in a drama-filled match here on Friday.
With 36 needed off the last over, Delhi’s Roman Powell clobbered Obed McCoy for three consecutive sixes in the first three deliveries to raise the hopes of an improbable win for DC before the West Indian bowler got his acts together to take his side home.
But the win came after a bit of drama as the DC team argued with the on-field umpires, claiming for a possible waist-high no ball but to no avail.
Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant, all-rounder Shardul Thakur and assistant coach Pravin Amre were slapped with heavy fines for breaching IPL’s Code of Conduct during Delhi Capitals vs Rajasthan Royals match at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Friday.
While skipper Pant has been fined 100 percent of the match fee, pacer Shardul Thakur, who seemed on the same page with his skipper, will lose 50 percent of his match fee as a fine. Alongside paying a fine of 100% of his match fee, Amre has also faced a one-match ban for the offence. It must be noted that the trio have been found guilty of a Level 2 breach of the IPL Code of Conduct.
