"As it was his team's first offence of the season under the IPL's Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offences, Samson was fined 12 lakhs," it added.

What does the IPL rulebook say on minimum over rate?

As per the IPL rulebook, “The minimum over rate to be achieved in IPL Matches shall be 14.11 overs per hour (ignoring the time taken by time-outs). In uninterrupted matches, this means that the 20th over should finish within 90 minutes (being 85 minutes of playing time plus 5 minutes of time-out) of the start of the innings. For delayed or interrupted matches where an innings is scheduled to be less than 20 overs, the maximum time of 90 minutes shall be reduced by 4 minutes 15 seconds for every over by which the innings is reduced."
