The Indian Cricket Board has taken strict action against Delhi Capitals skipper Rishabh Pant and the entire squad after they were found guilty of maintaining a slow over rate for the second time in a row in the IPL 2024.

Meanwhile, the Delhi Capitals skipper was fined Rs 12 lakh after maintaining the slow over rate during CSK; Pant was fined Rs 24 lakh after being found guilty in the game against KKR. The BCCI revealed that Pant will get a ban from one match as the skipper after his side is found guilty for the fourth time in the ongoing marquee event.

"Rishabh Pant, the Delhi Capitals captain, has been fined after his team maintained a slow over rate during their TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 match against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam on April 3," said BCCI in an official release.

However, during the chase, the Delhi Capitals were only able to make 166 runs before getting all out and going on to lose the game by 106 runs.
