Mumbai Indians, Delhi Daredevils docked for slow over-rates

Mumbai, May 5 (UNI) Mumbai Indians and Delhi Daredevils were slapped with fines of 1000 dollar and 500 dollar respectively for maintaining a slow overrate during yesterday's DLF Indian Premier League match at the D Y Patil Stadium by match referee Javagal Srinath.

According to the Indian Premier League's regulations, a team will be docked 500 dollar for each slow over.

The regulations came into force on May 2, when Lalit Modi, the chairman and commissioner of the IPL, said he had asked the match referees to keep an eye on the over-rate. ''Match referees have been asked to ensure that over-rates go as per the stipulated time. From next match, there will also be a penalty of 500 dollar for every slow over.'' The first teams to be docked for a slow over-rate were Deccan Chargers and Kings XI Punjab, who were each fined 1000 dollar on Friday.
