Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli has been fined Rs 12 lakh for maintaining slow over-rate during their Indian Premier League (IPL) against Chennai Super Kings here on Wednesday night.
The MS Dhoni led Chennai Super Kings beat the Royal Challengers Bangalore by 5 wickets in the final over the game, when Dhoni smashed Corey Anderson for a six to put the seal on the game.
Dhoni scored an unbeaten 34-ball-70, while Ambati Rayudu hammered another 82 off 53 balls to help CSK through the chase.
Before that, Kohli’s RCB posted a challenging 205 after riding on AB de Villiers 30-ball 68 and Quinton de Kock’s 53.
Kohli said after the match, “If we cannot defend even 200, it’s a problem somewhere. It hurts at the moment, very tough for us to swallow but great game for Chennai.”
