The most successful bowler for Delhi Capitals (DC) during their home clash with Gujarat Titans (GT) on Wednesday (April 24), Rasikh Salam Dar, has been penalised for going overboard with his celebration after claiming a wicket.

Salam, 24, was found guilty of breaching IPL's Code of Conduct. He has been reprimanded for committing a level 1 offence under Article 2.5 of the IPL's Code of Conduct, which deals with "using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from another player".

"Dar committed a Level 1 offence under Article 2.5 of the IPL's Code of Conduct. He admitted to the offence and accepted the Match Referee's sanction. For Level 1 breaches of the Code of Conduct, the Match Referee's decision is final and binding," the IPL said in a statement on Thursday.

However, Rasikh won't mind the breach much as he did what was expected of him against Titans. The right-arm pacer bagged figures of three for 44 in his four overs and two of his three wickets were big scalps in the form of Sai Sudharsan and Masood Shahrukh Khan.

Sudharsan (65 runs off 39 balls) was threatening to take the game away from Delhi with his striking ability but before he could dent the hosts any further, Salam got him caught at the long-off fence.

The Delhi Capitals skipper Rishabh Pant entrusted him with the responsibility of bowling the penultimate over of the game. With 37 needed to win off the last two overs, Rasikh had a decent amount of cushion to work with but Sai Kishore managed to get under his skin and tonked him for two consecutive sixes.

The Delhi pacer conceded 19 runs but got rid of the dangerous-looking Sai to make the job easier for Mukesh Kumar who only had to take care of Rashid Khan in the final over.

Mukesh conceded 14 and Delhi emerged victorious by four runs to climb to the sixth spot on the points table.

Delhi Capitals IPL 2024 squad:

Prithvi Shaw, Jake Fraser-McGurk, Abishek Porel, Shai Hope, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Tristan Stubbs, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Anrich Nortje, Khaleel Ahmed, Mukesh Kumar, David Warner, Lalit Yadav, Praveen Dubey, Rasikh Dar Salam, Sumit Kumar, Kumar Kushagra, Yash Dhull, Vicky Ostwal, Swastik Chikara, Jhye Richardson, Ricky Bhui, Lizaad Williams, Ishant Sharma
