Mahendra Singh Dhoni fined Rs 12 Lakhs due to slow over-rate against Delhi Capitals


Delhi were one of the favorites coming into the tournament and they announced the same in style with their thumping win against the Chennai Super Kings in the 2nd match of the IPL 2021.

While Chennai did put more than a fighting score on the board, the Delhi openers Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw made a mockery of it as the Capitals chased down the target with more than an over to spare with 7 wickets in hand. Meanwhile, this wasn’t the only bad news for the ‘Yellow Army’ as their captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was charged a hefty amount due to his team’s slow over-rate.
