New Delhi:

Rajasthan Royals skipper Ajinkya Rahane is fined Rs 12 lakh after his team maintained slow-over rate during their Indian Premier League match against Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium.

In the match, Rahane-led squad outshined the defending champions at their home ground by seven wickets, courtesy a whirlwind unbeaten 94 by opener Jos Buttler who stuck his fifth consecutive fifty in the tournament.

Since Jos Buttler started opening for Rajasthan Royals, he is looking quite unstoppable and his run scoring innings has helped RR greatly in giving good push to their team.

"Rajasthan Royals Captain Ajinkya Rahane has been fined after his team maintained a slow over-rate during their IPL match against Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on May 13’’, an IPL release said on Monday.

"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. Rahane was fined Rs 12 lakh’’, the release said.

Rajasthan Royals will lock horns with Dinesh Karthik’s Kolkata Knight Riders at the Edens Gardens on Wednesday.
