The announcement ended, “Mr Amre acknowledged to the Level 2 infraction under Article 2.2 of the IPL Code of Conduct and accepted the sentence.”
The last over drama that disrupted the RR versus DC match featured Pant, Thakur, and Amre. Powell smashed three consecutive sixes off Obed McCoy’s first three deliveries, requiring 36 runs from the final over. DC need an additional 18 from the remaining three deliveries. Kuldeep, who was on the non-end striker’s at the time, made a motion to the umpires, requesting that the last delivery be reviewed for a possible no-ball on height.
Powell also engaged in the debate with the umpires, but the authorities stayed firm, claiming that the delivery was lawful. Pant then motioned Powell and Kuldeep to go, despite assistant coach Shane Watson’s best efforts to persuade him otherwise. Praveen Amre, a member of the DC coaching team, also walked into the playing area, but the umpires forced him to leave. Yuzvendra Chahal of the Rajasthan Royals attempted to stop Kuldeep from stepping out, while Royals opener Jos Buttler, who struck a match-winning 116, was seen arguing with Pant at the boundary line.
