BCCI punishes Ramandeep 

Kolkata Knight Riders’ Ramandeep Singh is now facing a fine worth 20 Per Cent of of his match fees for violating the IPL Code of Conduct during the match against Mumbai Indians at the Eden Gardens. 

The 27-year-old player pleaded guilty to a Level 1 offence under Article 2.20 of the IPL Code of Conduct and accepted the punishment imposed by the match referee. 

“Ramandeep committed a Level 1 offence under Article 2.20 of the IPL Code of Conduct,” the IPL said in a statement on Sunday. 

For Level 1 breaches of the Code of Conduct, the match referee has to take a decision about the punishment and that decision is considered final and binding.

What is Article 2.20 in IPL code of conduct

According to the IPL’s Code of Conduct, Article 2.20 has to do with performing actions that aren’t normal in the game. Thus could include hitting the wicket, accidentally or deliberately damaging advertisements, fences, etc.

The IPL website defines the Article 2.20 as “includes any action(s) outside the course of normal cricket actions, such as hitting or kicking the wickets and any action(s) which deliberately (i.e. intentionally), recklessly or negligently (in either case even if accidental) results in damage to the advertising boards, boundary fences, dressing room doors, mirrors, windows and other fixtures and fittings. For example, this offence may be committed, without limitation, when a Player swings his/her bat vigorously in frustration and causes damage to an advertising board.”

Regardless of the offence, Ramandeep’s late cameo helped the Knight Riders reach a fighting total of 157/7 in a rain-curtailed 16-over match in Kolkata. He also took a crucial catch of batter Suryakumar Yadav in the run-chase, as KKR stopped Mumbai Indians at 139/8 to get a victory, capping off the Kolkata leg on a high.
