Towards the end of the match, Chargers were found to be one over short of the required rate after allowances were taken in to consideration.

Sangakkara was fined $20,000 for his first offence this season under the IPL's Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offences, an IPL release said.

Deccan Charges registered their first win in IPL 5 by beating Pune by 18 runs. Deccan have finally opened their account after five losses and a washout at Eden Gardens. Charges, however, remain at the bottom of the table.
