Prithvi Shaw, the Delhi Capitals’ opening batter, was fined 25 percent of his match fees for violating the IPL’s code of conduct during the team’s encounter against the Lucknow Super Giants on Sunday afternoon. The young batsman struggled once more during his innings, as he was removed for 5 runs off 7 balls as he failed to provide the start that his team required when chasing 195 against the Lions of Singapore.
“Mr. Shaw admitted to the Level 1 offence under Article 2.2 of the IPL Code of Conduct and accepted the sentence,” the Indian Premier League (IPL) stated in a statement about the batter’s admission to the violation. “In the case of Level 1 violations of the Code of Conduct, the decision of the Match Referee is final and binding.” Gestures directed at umpires or the opponent are considered a Level 1 offence.
Because of their victory over the Delhi Capitals, the Lucknow Super Giants are now strong favourites to make it to the postseason this season. Delhi Capitals would have to win practically all of their remaining games if they want a chance at making the playoffs this season, according to the team’s coach. Prithvi Shaw has had a decent outing till now, he has scored run in some matches and failed to do so in others. His long time batting partner Shikhar Dhawan who now plays for Kings XI Punjab has had a good start. His now batting partner David Warner has found his form and they now seem to find a good opening partner.
