IPL 2023: Sunrisers Hyderabad’s Heinrich Klaasen fined 10 per cent of match fee | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Sunrisers Hyderabad wicket-keeper Heinrich Klaasen was fined 10% of his match fee for breaching the IPL Code of Conduct in his side’s seven-wicket loss to Lucknow Super Giants in Hyderabad on Saturday.
“Klaasen has admitted the Level 1 offense under Article 2.7 which stipulates the use of public criticism/inappropriate comments in the IPL’s Code of Conduct,” said an IPL press release.
Klaasen, who scored the most with a 47 from 29 balls to bring SRH’s total to 182/6, had a heated conversation with the leg umpire. He also expressed his displeasure when speaking to broadcasters.
Avesh Khan threw a full throw at waist height to Abdul Samad but leg umpire Akshay Totre didn’t call it a no-ball.
SRH called for a DRS but to their horror TV umpire Yeshwant Barde also ruled it in favor of the bowling team.
Unruly crowd behavior followed the incident as Klaasen criticized him mid-innings.

“To be honest, let down by the crowd, that’s not what you want. It also broke the momentum, not good refereeing either,” Klaasen said.
Mishra reprimanded
Lucknow Super Giants veteran Indian spinner Amit Mishra has also been reprimanded for breaching the IPL code of conduct.
“The leg-spinner has admitted to a Level 1 offense under Article 2.2 of the IPL Code of Conduct which stipulates misuse of equipment during the match. Mr Mishra has accepted the sanction.”
For Tier 1 breaches of the Code of Conduct, the match referee’s decision is final and binding, the statement added.
