Kolkata Knight Riders captain Gautam Gambhir was fined 15 percent of his match fee for kicking a chair during his team’s IPL victory over RCB, even as rival captain Virat Kohli was penalised Rs. 24 lakh for his team's slow over-rate for the second time in IPL 2016.
Television replays showed Gambhir kicking a chair in the dug-out after his teammate Suryakumar Yadav hit a boundary. Commentators on air found it puzzling over Gambhir 's violent reactionsince his team was in a winning position.
Meanwhile, RCB captain Kohli has now paid a total fine of Rs 36 lakh, having already been fined Rs 12 lakh for an earlier offence of slow over-rate. This time his penalty was doubled as it was the second time that his bowlers failed to keep a decent overrate.
