Indian Premier League team Rajasthan Royals captain Rahul Dravid has been fined USD 20,000 after his team failed to keep up with the stipulated over-rate during its IPL match against Kolkata Knight Riders at Jaipur.

“Rajasthan Royals captain Rahul Dravid has been fined after the team maintained a slow over rate during last night’s Pepsi IPL match against Kolkata Knight Riders in Jaipur,” the IPL authorities said in a release.

At the end of the match, Rajasthan Royals were assessed to be two overs behind the required rate after allowances were taken into consideration.

“Since it was his first offence of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offences, Mr. Rahul Dravid was fined USD 20,000,” the release stated.

Rajasthan Royals won the match by 19 runs and are currently on top in the points table with two victories in two matches played so far.
