KKR Wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik has been reprimanded for breaching the IPL code of conduct during the game against Delhi Capitals in Qualifier 2 yesterday. KKR restricted the run flow from Delhi Capitals, and the spinners used the conditions to their advantage.

In the end, the 135 run chase looked very paltry for the KKR side, who got off to a fantastic start and made sure they were always above the required net run rate. There were some slight hiccups with a string of wickets at the back end of the innings, but Rahul Tripathi came to the rescue and won the game for KKR.

Dinesh Karthik Accepts The Sanction

Dinesh Karthik had admitted to the level 1 offence 2.2 of the IPL Code of conduct, but the reason for the breach had not been specified anywhere. It is believed the breach could be for having dislodged a stump in anger during his dismissal, and that could be one of the possible reasons.

“Karthik admitted to the Level 1 offence 2.2 of the IPL’s Code of Conduct and accepted the sanction. For Level 1 breaches of the Code of Conduct, the Match Referee’s decision is final and binding,” An official statement said.
