Dinesh Karthik from Royal Challengers Bangalore has been reprimanded for breaching the Indian Premier League’s (IPL) Code of Conduct

during his team’s Eliminator match against Lucknow Super Giants on May 25th at Eden Gardens, Kolkata,” IPL said in an official statement on Friday.

Royal Challengers Bangalore's wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Karthik was reprimanded for breaching IPL Code of Conduct in the IPL 2022 Eliminator match against Lucknow Super Giants. 

Karthik's breach was catagorised as a Level 1 offence, for which the match referee's decision is final. The veteran right-hander accepted the sanction

Mr. Karthik admitted to the Level 1 offence under Article 2.3 of the IPL Code of Conduct and accepted the sanction

For Level 1 breaches of the Code of Conduct, the Match Referee’s decision is final and binding,” the statement further added.

The official release did not mention the exact reason for reprimanding Karthik but in all likelihood it was because

of the right-hander's reaction for failing to make contact off an Avesh Khan delivery in the last over the RCB innings.

Karthik shuffled across to try and play the ramp shot but did not make any contact. He was livid with himself and shouted in anger.
