The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on April 22 fined Virat Kohli 50 per cent of match fees on Virat Kohli for Level 1 offence under Article 2.20 of the IPL’s Code of Conduct.

The decision was taken after Kohli challenged umpire's decision on his controversial dismissal at Eden Gardens in the match against Kolkata Knight Riders.

"Virat Kohli, Batter, Royal Challengers Bengaluru has been fined 50 per cent of his match fees for breaching the IPL Code of Conduct during Match 36 of the TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata on April 21, 2024," IPL stated in a statement.

Kohli was caught and bowled by a high full-toss delivery from KKR's Harshit Rana, when RCB was chasing a target of 223 runs against KKR. With the umpire signaled it out, Kohli revolted, calling for a no ball. RCB skipper Faf du Plessis also backed Kohli.

The broadcasters later aired a detailed explanation of why Kohli was given out. They said that Kohli's waist was 1.04 metres high while the delivery was 0.92 metres at the the probable point of contact, had the batter stood upright at the popping crease. A seemingly unconvinced Kohli went back to the pavilion depressed, after arguing with the umpire.
