Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been reprimanded for breaching the IPL Code of Conduct during Rising Pune Supergiant’s match with Mumbai Indians.
“M.S. Dhoni admitted the Level 1 offence (Article 2.1.1) for conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game,” read an official IPL statement, but the exact reason for his rebuke was not divulged.
“For Level 1 breaches of the IPL Code of Conduct, the Match Referee’s decision is final and binding,” it added. The match referee in Pune was Manu Nayyar.
During the high-octane clash, Dhoni had asked for a DRS referral when it was not for the taking. The Pune franchise won the game by seven wickets with captain Steven Smith smashing an unbeaten 84 off 54 balls.
