Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli has been fined Rs 12 lakh for maintaining slow over-rate during their Indian Premier League (IPL) against Chennai Super Kings at the M Chinnaswamy stadium on Wednesday night.
The hosts had put on board a challenging 205 for eight but riding on MS Dhoni's power-packed 34-ball 70, Super Kings overhauled the formidable target with two balls to spare.
"As it was his team's first offence of the season under the IPL's Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offences, Mr. Kohli was fined Rs 12 lakh," an IPL press release said.
RCB suffered yet another loss in a thriller match against the Chennai Super Kings after MS Dhoni guided the visitors to an emphatic win at the M Chinnaswamy stadium, winning by 5 wickets.
MS Dhoni's 70* and Ambati Rayudu's 82 helped Chennai clinch a win when RCB at one time had the game in hand after dismissing the major batsman from the CSK squad.
