Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma failed to control his reaction when the umpire judged him out lbw, despite the ball catching a huge edge off his bat. Mumbai Indians were batting on 105, chasing Kolkata Knight Riders’ 178.
Despite the fall of wickets at regular intervals, Mumbai managed to pull off a thrilling four-wicket win.
However, after the match the skipper was reprimanded by the match referee for his behaviour.
"Rohit Sharma, the Mumbai Indians captain, was reprimanded by the match referee for showing excessive, obvious disappointment with an Umpire's decision during his team's contest against the Kolkata Knight Riders at the Wankhede Stadium," an Indian Premier League (IPL) statement said.
"Mr Sharma admitted to the Level 1 offence 2.1.5 of the IPL Code of Conduct for Players and Team Officials. For Level 1 breaches of the IPL Code of Conduct, the Match Referee's decision is final and binding," it added.
