Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli was fined Rs 12 lakh for maintaining a slow-over rate during Saturday’s Indian Premier League match against Kings XI Punjab, in Mohali.
"As it was his team's first offence of the season, under the IPL's Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offences Mr. Kohli was fined Rs 12 lakh," read an IPL statement.
