Delhi Capitals’ emerging pacer violates IPL’s Code of Conduct, reprimanded for aggresive celebration

The most successful bowler for Delhi Capitals (DC) during their home clash with Gujarat Titans (GT) on Wednesday (April 24), Rasikh Salam Dar, has been penalised for going overboard with his celebration after claiming a wicket.

Salam, 24, was found guilty of breaching IPL’s Code of Conduct. He has been reprimanded for committing a level 1 offence under Article 2.5 of the IPL’s Code of Conduct, which deals with “using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from another player”.

“Dar committed a Level 1 offence under Article 2.5 of the IPL’s Code of Conduct. He admitted to the offence and accepted the Match Referee’s sanction. For Level 1 breaches of the Code of Conduct, the Match Referee’s decision is final and binding,” the IPL said in a statement on Thursday.

However, Rasikh won’t mind the breach much as he did what was expected of him against Titans. The right-arm pacer bagged figures of three for 44 in his four overs and two of his three wickets were big scalps in the form of Sai Sudharsan and Masood Shahrukh Khan.
