Mumbai Indians head coach Mahela Jayawardene has reacted to the no-ball controversy that marred the Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals match

Delhi Capitals skipper Rishabh Pant has been fined 100 per cent of his match-fee for breaching the Indian Premier League (IPL) Code of Conduct during his team’s defeat against Rajasthan Royals at the Wankhede stadium. Pant admitted to the Level 2 offence under Article 2.7 of the IPL Code of Conduct and accepted the sanction. Capitals’ all-rounder Shardul Thakur was fined 50 percent of his match-fee for breaching the Code of Conduct. He admitted to the Level 2 offence under Article 2.8 of the IPL Code of Conduct and accepted the sanction.

Pravin Amre, who was seen arguing with the umpires, has been fined 100 percent of his match-fee for breaching the Code of Conduct. The former India player has been banned for one match. Amre admitted to the Level 2 offence under Article 2.2 of the IPL Code of Conduct and accepted the sanction.

Needing 36 off last 6 balls, Rajasthan pacer Obed McCoy bowled a full-toss and Rovman Powell hit it for a six, his third consecutive of the over.

However, the Delhi Capitals players thought it was a no-ball and captain Pant was seen instructing Powell and Kuldeep Yadav to leave the playing area. Amre then stepped on to the field to argue with the umpires.

In the end , Rajasthan Royals won the game by 15 runs.
