"Rishabh Pant, the Delhi Capitals captain, has been fined after his team maintained a slow over rate during their IPL match against Chennai Super Kings," an IPL statement read. "As it was his team’s first offence of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over rate offences, Pant was fined Rs 12 lakhs," it added.

The wicketkeeper-batter is the second captain to be fined for slow over rate this season. Shubman Gill had also been fined INR 12 lakh for the same infraction while leading Gujarat Titans against CSK on March 26.

While Gill's sanction followed his side's crushing 63-run loss to CSK, Pant enjoyed his team's first win this season - against the Ruturaj Gaikwad-led side. Openers Prithvi Shaw and David Warner gave a blazing start to the Capitals before Pant smashed a 32-ball 51 to power his team to a 192-run target.

The DC bowlers then did the job, with seamers Khaleel Ahmed and Mukesh Kumar unsettling CSK batters. Despite MS Dhoni's entertaining 16-ball 37 not out in the end, the title holders faced their first defeat of the season.
