IPL 12 is going on, and Chennai Super Kings is on top of the table this year as they have only lost one out of the seven games that they have played. In the last game, Rajasthan Royals gave a target of 152 to Chennai Super Kings and with Rayudu’s 57 and Dhoni’s 58 it became a nail-biting experience for the audience. Ravindra Jadeja did hit a six, and fell on the ground and even the bowler Ben Stokes fell on the ground, so it was fun scene to watch. After that six, Dhoni came from the runner side, and hit Jadeja on his head with the bat in a joyous manner. Jadeja also completed his 100 wickets in the game.
But after that, Dhoni got out and Mitchell Santner came to play. In the last 3 balls of the game, CSK needed 8 runs when Stokes threw a full toss no-ball and the straight umpire Ulhas Gandhe did give the decision of it to be a no-ball. But then the square leg umpire revoked the decision, and that is when Dhoni lost his temper and walked to the field to argue with the umpires. At last, CSK did win the game with Santner’s six on the last ball, but Dhoni was fined 50% of his match fee for that incident. "MS Dhoni, the Chennai Super Kings captain, was fined 50 percent of his match fees for breaching the Indian Premier League's Code of Conduct during his team's match against Rajasthan Royals at Jaipur. Dhoni admitted to the Level 2 offence 2.20 of the IPL's Code of Conduct and accepted the sanction," said a media release from IPL.
"The skipper coming from the dugout onto the pitch...cannot happen. I know he's MS Dhoni, I know he can do what he wants in this country. But you're not allowed to leave the dugout as a skipper and point your finger at the umpire out in the middle. Sorry, that is a no-no. You cannot be sending out that message, you can't be setting that example as captain. Sometimes things don't go your way, you go sit in that dugout and give it a little bit of that", said Michael Vaughan.
