Steve Smith's batting failures have been a talking point in this IPL. In two consecutive matches, the former Australian skipper, one of the most reliable top-order batsmen in the world, fell to reckless strokes.

His early exit was one of the many reasons for Rajasthan Royals' 57-run defeat against Mumbai Indians. Smith scored six in a tall chase of 194.

Steve was fined for slow over-rate. Rs 12 lakh is the minimum penalty for first-time offenders as per IPL's Code of Conduct.

Earlier in the tournament, Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli and Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer were also fined Rs 12 lakh each for their respective team's slow over rate.
