INDIA: Dinesh Karthik of Royal Challengers Bangalore was penalised for violating the IPL Code of Conduct during the IPL 2022 Eliminator match against Lucknow Super Giants.

“Dinesh Karthik of Royal Challengers Bangalore was penalised for violating the TATA Indian Premier League’s (IPL) Code of Conduct during his team’s Eliminator encounter against Lucknow Super Giants on May 25th at Eden Gardens in Kolkata,” the IPL said in an official statement on Friday.

Karthik’s violation was classified as a Level 1 offence, and the match referee’s verdict is final. The sentence was accepted by the experienced right-hander.

“Mr. Karthik accepted the sentence after admitting to the Level 1 infraction under Article 2.3 of the IPL Code of Conduct.” The Match Referee’s judgement is final and binding for Level 1 violations of the Code of Conduct,” the statement said.

The official announcement did not specify why Karthik was reprimanded, although it was most likely due to the right-response hander’s to failing to make contact off an Avesh Khan ball in the final over of the RCB innings.

Karthik moved across to attempt the ramp shot but failed to make contact. He was furious with himself and yelled angrily.

Karthik stayed unbeaten on 37 off 23 balls and created a stunning 92-run partnership for the fifth wicket with centurion Rajat Patidar (112*) off only 41 balls to lift RCB to 207/4. The sum was too much for LSG, who were defeated by RCB by 14 runs.

The 2016 finalists will meet the Rajasthan Royals in the Qualifier 2 match on Friday in Ahmedabad for a place in the finals. On Sunday, the winner will face Gujarat Titans for the IPL 2022 crown.
