Chennai Super Kings (CSK) skipper MS Dhoni has been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during his team's IPL 2021 campaign opener against Delhi Capitals (DC) at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Saturday.

"As it was his team's first offence of the season under the IPL's Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offences, Mr Dhoni was fined Rs 12 lakh," an IPL statement said.

According to IPL 2021 Code of Conduct, the minimum over-rate in the 14th season should be 14.1 overs per hour, ignoring the time taken for strategic time-outs.

In uninterrupted matches, the BCCI wants teams to finish bowling their quota of 20 overs within 90 minutes.

CSK vs DC:

It was a disappointing day for CSK as they lost the match by seven wickets to start their IPL 2021 campaign with a defeat.

After suffering a massive defeat against DC, Chennai Super Kings skipper Dhoni said the execution of his bowlers was poor.

Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw delivered magnificent performances as they powered DC to a commanding win over CSK in the Indian Premier League at the Wankhede Stadium on Saturday.

On Saturday, CSK bowled only 18.4 overs as Delhi Capitals gunned down a 189-run target with eight balls to spare. Rishabh Pant's team won by seven wickets.

CSK will now return to action on April 16 when they face Punjab Kings.
