Since this was KKR's second over-rate-related offence, skipper Morgan was fined INR 12 lakh, while the rest of the team were either fined INR 6 lakh or 25% of their match fee. He could face a one-match ban of he is found guilty of the same again.

"As it was the team’s second offence of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offences, Kolkata Knight Riders captain Eoin Morgan was fined Rs 24 lakhs. The rest of the members of the playing XI were each fined lesser of either Rs 6 lakhs or 25 percent of their individual match fee," an IPL media release stated.
