CSK vs RR: Samson fined Rs 12 lakh for slow over-rate

Rajasthan Royals skipper Sanju Samson has been fined Rs 12 lakh for maintaining a slow over-rate during their Indian Premier League (IPL) match against Chennai Super Kings here.

Over rate is proving to be an issue in the IPL again with a lot of games stretching past the four-hour mark.

“As it was the team’s first offence of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offences, captain Sanju Samson was fined Rs 12 lakhs,” read an IPL media advisory.

Royals skipper Sanju Samson fell for a second consecutive duck in IPL 2023.

Samson was cleaned bowled by Ravindra Jadeja for a two-ball duck in the ninth over. A couple of deliveries earlier, Jadeja had sent back Devdutt Padikkal, who was dismissed for 38 off 26 balls.

Rajasthan had pulled off a last-ball win over CSK on Wednesday with Sandeep Sharma bowling a brilliant 20th over to deny M S Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja.

It was Rajasthan’s third win in four games while CSK suffered their second loss of the season.
