Rishabh Pant, the Delhi Capitals captain, has been fined after his team maintained a slow over-rate during their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 match against Chennai Super Kings at the Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam on March 31. As it was his team’s first offence of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offences, Pant was fined Rs 12 lakhs.  

The match between DC and CSK turned out to be an amazing affair as Pant returned to form after injury with a stunning fifty as the Capitals went on to win the first match of the season with 20 runs. Though CSK lost the match after winning their first two games, the Yellow Army’s fans went home too happy as MS Dhoni turned the clock with his explosive knock.

Dhoni unleashed his very best when his side was struggling and scored 37* crucial runs off 16 deliveries with the help of four fours and three sixes. However, he lacked the required support from Jadeja as CSK lost the match by 20 runs.

Bowlers have been clinical today. We’ve learnt from our mistakes. He’s been working hard for the last two weeks (Shaw). We thought it was time to give him a chance and he flourished. It will depend on match to match, but if Mukesh can bowl at the death it’ll be great. As a cricketer, I’ve to give my 100 percent. Took some time initially as I haven’t played much cricket in the last 1.5 years. This is something I’ve depended my life on. Always had the self-belief that whatever happens, it’s important to come back to the ground,” said Pant after the match.
