In response to DRS indications issued to Suryakumar Yadav from the dugout, BCCI acts.

The Mumbai Indians’ batter Tim Dafabet and batting coach Kieron Pollard were disciplined by the BCCI after they were found guilty of breaking the IPL Code of Conduct during their game against the Punjab Kings on Thursday at Mullanpur. “Mumbai Indians batter Tim David and batting coach Kieron Pollard have been fined for breaching the IPL’s Code of Conduct during their team’s Tata Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 match against Punjab Kings at the PCA New International Cricket Stadium, Mullanpur on April 18,” the BCCI stated.

David and Pollard committed a Level 1 infraction in line with IPL Code of Conduct Article 2.20. Pollard and Betway Login India each lost twenty percent of their match fees. Both accepted the penalty set by the Match Referee and admitted to the infraction. According to BCCI, in cases of Level 1 violations of the code of conduct, the match referee’s decision is final and enforceable.

The MI batting players Tilak Varma and Suryakumar Yadav received a signal from David and Pollard to review a wide decision in the sixteenth over of the match, and although the BCCI did not reveal the details of their offence, it was clear that this was the cause.

The last delivery of the 15th over was a wide yorker from PBKS spinner Arshdeep Singh, which 1xbet login could not get a grip on. It was decided by the referee not to label it a wide. But then, according to Wisden, the camera panned across to the MI dugout, where Tim David and batting coach Kieron Pollard were seen asking the hitter to take a review by making the ‘T’ sign with his hands, while head coach Mark Boucher indicated to Suryakumar that it was a wide.

SKY asked for the review, which was approved—much to the dismay of PBSK stand-in skipper Sam Curran. The decision was reversed, and the third umpire called a wide. Arshdeep had one more delivery to bowl in order for the 15th over to conclude with a boundary.
