Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer has been fined Rs 12 Lakh for slow over-rate during their match against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Tuesday. It was his first offence for maintaining slow-over rate in the ongoing edition.
"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. Iyer was fined Rs 12 lakh," a statement on IPL's website read.
Earlier, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Virat Kohli was also fined for maintaining slow over-rate during the match against Kings XI Punjab in the current season.
Delhi Capitals conceded their first defeat of the season on Tuesday as SRH beat Shreyas Iyer's side by 15 runs. In the 163-run chase, the Sunrisers held DC to 147/7.
It was also SRH's first win of the season, having lost their opening two games against Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders respectively.
Leg-spinner Rashid Khan stepped up for SRH against the Capitals as he took three key wickets - all including DC's top-order batsmen (Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant), as he returned with figures of 3/14 in four overs.
