Dhoni fined 50% match fee, faces flak for behaviour

Jaipur: Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni has been fined 50 per cent of his match fee for breaching the IPL Code of Conduct during his team's match against Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur.

Dhoni admitted to the Level 2 offence 2.20 of the IPL's Code of Conduct and accepted the sanction.

The incident took place in the last over of the Chennai innings. With eight runs required off the last three balls, Ben Stokes bowled slower full toss. While leg umpire Bruce Oxenford didn't raise his arm, Ulhas Gandhe did and the buzzer also went off in the stadium which signifies that a no-ball has been called. But seeing Oxenford's reaction, Gandhe then dropped his arm and changed the earlier call. This saw M S Dhoni storm into the field and have a long debate with both the umpires. In fact, he was seen constantly saying that Gandhe did call it a no-ball before the decision was overturned.
