    Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma fined for slow over-rate

    Rohit Sharma has been fined $1,500, while his team-mates were docked $750 each for maintaining a slow over-rate.

    Jaipur: Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma has been fined $1,500, while his team-mates were docked $750 each for maintaining a slow over-rate during their Champions League Twenty20 match against Rajasthan Royals here.

    "Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma has been fined after the team maintained a slow over rate during last night's CLT20 match against Rajasthan in Jaipur," the CLT20 organisers said in a statement.

    At the end of the match last night, Mumbai were assessed to be one over behind the required rate after allowances were taken into consideration.

    "Since it was his first offence of the season under the CLT20's Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offences, Sharma was fined $1,500 whilst each team member was fined $750," it added.

    Mumbai lost by seven wickets to Rajasthan to open their CLT20 campaign on a disappointing note here.
