LSG pacer Avesh Khan let his emotions flow after a thrilling win versus RCB

Lucknow Super Giants’ (LSG) thrilling one-wicket win, on the final ball of the match, over Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) must have been one of the most exciting cricket matches in recent times.

After a tense final over that saw pacer Avesh Khan’s blind run and RCB wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik’s ‘infamous’ fumble in the final delivery, LSG’s No. 11 let his emotions flow as he flung his helmet aggressively after the win.

The action was enough for Match Referee Daniel Manohar to reprimand the 26-year-old pacer from Indore, Madhya Pradesh. Though Avesh was spared any financial penalty.

“Lucknow Super Giants’ Avesh Khan has been reprimanded for breaching the Code of Conduct. Avesh admitted to level 1 offence 2.2 of IPL’s Code of Conduct and accepted the sanction,” IPL stated.

For Level 1 breaches of the Code of Conduct, the Match Referee’s decision is final and binding.

Avesh, who was on strike, had failed to connect his bat with the final delivery by Harshal Patel. The ball went straight to the wicketkeeper, Karthik, who fumbled and allowed Avesh and non-striker Ravi Bishnoi to complete the run and record a memorable win.

Meanwhile, RCB skipper Faf du Plessis has been handed a fine by the IPL GC for maintaining a ‘slow over-rate’ in the match. Du Plessis was given a fine of ₹12 lakh after the RCB failed to finish their quota of overs in due time.

“The Royal Challengers Bangalore have been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 match 15 against the Lucknow Super Giants at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru, on Monday,” the IPL stated.

“As it was the team’s first offence of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offences, captain Faf du Plessis was fined ₹12 lakhs,” it added.
