CSK captain Dhoni fined for confronting Umpires

Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been fined 50 per cent of his match fee for breaching the VIVO Indian Premier League’s IPL Code of Conduct after he confronted the umpires for not giving no-ball in the last over of CSK’s chase against Rajasthan Royals. The match was being played at Sawai man Singh Stadium in Jaipur on Thursday night.

The CSK captain admitted to the ‘Level 2 offence 2.20 of the IPL’s Code of Conduct and accepted the sanction.” The incident took place during the last over in which the Mitchell Santner smashed Ben Stokes for a maximum off the final ball to help CSK seal a last-ball thriller, says a report.

The clash witnessed a big controversy as Dhoni, who was standing right on the boundary ropes threw his hands up in the air after noticing that umpire Ulhas Gandhe put his arm up, only to be overruled by square leg umpire Bruce Oxenford.

Despite, Dhoni's long-drawn protest, the decision stood, which left CSK six off the last two balls.
