  • Yesterday’s KKR star, Fined for Misconduct

Kolkata Knight Riders star Harshit Rana has been handed a stringent penalty for breaching the Code of Conduct in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 match against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Saturday. The fine is said to have been imposed on the KKR pacer because of his send-offs to SRH stars Mayank Agarwal and Heinrich Klaasen.

The young Knight Riders seamer emerged as the match-winner against the Sunrisers, especially with his final over heroics. But, his conduct left many disappointed, with IPL deducting 60 percent of his match fee.

Kolkata Knight Riders pacer Harshit Rana may have emerged a hero with his brilliant final over in the four-run win against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Saturday, but his send-off to Mayank Agarwal has landed him in trouble.

Rana lost his cool as he dismissed the SRH opener earlier in the innings, blowing a flying kiss towards Mayank as he walked back towards the dressing room.

There were many on social media who weren’t too pleased with the send-off and BCCI, on Sunday, took note of the incident as it slapped a 60 per cent fine on the pacer. In a release following the game, the board confirmed that Harshit Rana has been imposed the punishment for breaching the IPL Code of Conduct.
