DC skipper Rishabh Pant has been fined 24 Lakh rupees for maintaining a slow-over rate for the second consecutive time in IPL 2024 during their loss to KKR on April 3, Wednesday in Vizag. Pant wasn’t the only one fined as the rest of the playing XI was also given penalties for the offence during the match. The game saw DC suffer their third loss of the season.

While Pant shone with the bat for Delhi along with Tristan Stubbs, the rest of the side failed to deliver as KKR scored 272 for 7 in 20 overs. This was the second highest score in the history of the IPL and set up a tough chase for DC.

The home side would eventually have their innings come to an end at 166, thus handing KKR a 106-run win.

The BCCI released a statement after the game revealing that Pant was penalised as DC maintained a slow over-rate. Since DC were penalised for the same offence in their win over CSK, Pant was fined 24 Lakh rupees.

The rest of the side, including the Impact Player were each fined 6 Lakh rupees or 25 percent of their match fees individually.

“Rishabh Pant, the Delhi Capitals captain, has been fined after his team maintained a slow over rate during their TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 match against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam on April 3,” said BCCI in an official release.

“As it was his team’s second offence of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over rate offences, Pant was fined INR 24 lakhs. The rest of the members of the Playing XI, including the Impact Player, were each individually fined either INR 6 lakhs or 25 percent of their respective match fees, whichever is lesser,” read the statement.

What’s next for DC and Rishabh Pant?

Pant and DC won’t have a lot of time to think about their loss to KKR as they will now travel to Mumbai to face MI on April 7, Sunday. Both teams are languishing at the bottom of the table with MI winless so far in the three games that they have played.
