IPL 2024: Delhi Capitals skipper Rishabh Pant suspended for 1 match and fined over slow over-rate

New Delhi/IBNS: In a blow for Delhi Capitals in the crucial stage of IPL 2024, Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant has been suspended for one match and fined for his team's slow over-rate during the match against Rajasthan Royals.

The match was played at the Arun Jaitley Stadium here on May 7.

As it was his team’s third offence of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offences, Pant was fined Rs. 30 Lac and suspended for one match.

The rest of the members of the Playing XI, including the Impact Player, were each individually fined either Rs. 12 lakhs or 50 per cent of their respective match fees, whichever is lesser.

As per Article 8 of the IPL Code of Conduct, the Delhi Capitals filed an appeal challenging the ruling of the Match Referee.

Following this, the appeal was referred to the BCCI Ombudsman for review.

The Ombudsman conducted a virtual hearing and affirmed that the decision of the Match Referee remains final and binding.

Pant's suspension is a blow to DC as the franchise has locked horns with other teams to make a late entry into the playoffs.
