Kings XI Punjab fined for slow over rate

Kings XI Punjab has been fined by the Indian Premier League (IPL) for maintaining a slow over rate during the match against Rajasthan Royals on Wednesday night.

At the end of the match, Kings XI Punjab were assessed to be one over behind the required rate after allowances were taken into consideration.

Since it was Kings XI Punjab's second offence of the season, under the IPL's Code of Conduct relating to minimum over rate offences, captain Kumar Sangakkara was fined $40,000 and each player in the team $10,000. Sangakkara was earlier fined $20,000 for his team's first offence.

Mumbai Indians' Sachin Tendulkar, Delhi Daredevils' Gautam Gambhir and Knight Riders' Sourav Ganguly are other captains who have been fined so far in the IPL.
