KKR’s Dinesh Karthik reprimanded by BCCI for the breach of code of conduct during the game against DC

Although the nature of the breach is not specified yet, the speculations are that he must have been reprimanded for knocking the stumps in frustration after he got out in the second inning.

Former Delhi player and KKR captain, Dinesh Karthik have been reprimanded by IPL for breaching the code of conduct in the Match against DC on Wednesday. According to Hindustan Times, BCCI released a statement about the wicketkeeper-batsman being found guilty of the offence. “Karthik admitted to the level 1 offence 2.2 of the IPl’s Code of Conduct and accepted the sanction,” the IPL official statement read.

The match played on Wednesday was a high octane encounter, with both the teams playing for a place in the final. While DC was looking for their second consecutive final, KKR was eyeing this opportunity after 7 years. Therefore this offence doesn’t come as a surprise since numerous emotions are at play when players strive to achieve their best. Although the nature of the breach is not specified yet, the speculations are that he must have been reprimanded for knocking the stumps in frustration after he got out in the second inning.

It turned out to be a tumultuous affair, as after dominating the game for a long time in the match, KKR found themselves lagging towards the end of the second inning. Delhi Capitals did not have the best start to their innings and found it very hard to score run or accelerate throughout their inning. As a result, they were only able to post a marginal score of 135 in their 20 overs. KKR on the other hand had a flying start. With Shubhman Gill and Venkatesh Iyer both showing some stupendous batting in the powerplay, they had accumulated 76 runs by the halfway stage of the inning. However, the wicket of Iyer in the 12th over opened up a slender chance, on which DC pounced immediately. They stopped the runs, which built pressure on KKR batsmen. And led to a collapse of gigantic proportion as they lost 6 wickets for just 7 runs. The game still hung in balance, tilting a little towards DC as KKR required 6 of the last 2 balls. Rahul Tripathi secured his team’s place in the final by hitting a massive six in the second last ball of the inning.

KKR will play CSK in the final, which is to be held on the 15th of October.
