In the IPL 2022 Eliminator match against Lucknow Super Giants, Royal Challengers Bangalore wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik was penalised for violating the IPL Code of Conduct.
“Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Dinesh Karthik has been penalised for violating the TATA Indian Premier League’s (IPL) Code of Conduct during his team’s Eliminator encounter against Lucknow Super Giants on May 25th at Eden Gardens, Kolkata,” the IPL said in a statement on Friday.
Karthik’s infraction was classified as a Level 1 violation, with the match referee’s ruling being final. The sentence was accepted by the experienced right-hander.
“Mr. Karthik accepted the sentence for the Level 1 infraction under Article 2.3 of the IPL Code of Conduct. The Match Referee’s judgement is final and binding for Level 1 Code of Conduct violations, according to the statement.
The official statement did not specify why Karthik was reprimanded, although it was most likely due to the right-reaction hander’s to failing to make contact with an Avesh Khan ball in the RCB innings’ last over.
Karthik shuffled across the court to attempt the ramp shot but failed to connect. He was furious with himself and yelled angrily.
