At the third position on the IPL points table are defending champions Mumbai Indians, who won and lost a game each. Punjab Kings (PBKS) also have the same number of points as Mumbai Indians, but their inferior Net Run Rate (NRR) has pushed them to fourth position, with two points from one game.
According to news agency ANI, Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli was reprimanded for breaching the Indian Premier League’s (IPL) Code of Conduct during his team’s match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Wednesday. Kohli scored 33 runs and was bagged by Jason Holder in the 13th over of the innings. Vijay Shankar caught him in the outfield. Kohli, while leaving the ground, was seen hitting the boundary cushion with his bat as well as a chair placed by the dugout following his dismissal.
