Bangalore: May 15, 2012

An ugly spat occurred between Royal Challengers Bangalore bowler Harshal Patel and Mumbai batsman Ambati Rayudu in the IPL match between the two sides and the home team captain came in defence of his player.

Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians skipper Harbhajan Singh has also been fined for mantaining a slow over rate during the match against Royal Challengesr Bangalore (RCB).

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

Since it was Harbhajan’s first offence of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over rate offences, the Mumbai captain was fined USD 20,000. (PTI)
