After the match between Mumbai and Pune in the 28th match of IPL 10, the umpires and match referee had to take a tough decision. Under this decision, the player who has opposed the decision of the umpire has been fined 50 percent of his match fee.
This player is none other than the Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma. He left the strike when he was not given a wide contract for Jaydev Unadkat’s ball in the last over of the match and had a strong argument with umpire Ravi. The case had so far increased that both leg-spinner had to separate the leg umpire Nand Kishore.
This was the third ball of the 20th over that was 19.3 overs. Unadkat had made a slow ball outside the off-stump. Rohit went out of the off stump and tried to play that ball, but there was no run. When the umpire Ravi did not give it a wide contract, Rohit went to him asking for the reason. After a sharp debate, the matter got settled.
Rohit accepted the charge of level 1 of Section 2.1.5 of the IP code of conduct and accepted his mistake. In this session Rohit Sharma is accused of second level 1. In violation of Level 1, the match referee’s decision in this case is final and valid.
