Delhi Capitals have had a double blow on Tuesday night as the Shreyas Iyer led team lost to Sunrisers Hyderabad and the skipper has also been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate.

Shreyas has been fined Rs. 12 lakh as this was DC’s first offence of slow over-rate in the ongoing IPL season. ” As it was his team’s first offence of the season under IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offences, Iyer was fined Rs. 12 Lakh,” said an official statement.

Slow over-rate:

This is the second case of slow over-rate offence in the IPL 2020 as RCB skipper Virat Kohli was also fined Rs. 12 lakh for maintaining slow over-rate against the King XI Punjab.
