Ranchi, Sep 27: Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni produced a sensational 19-ball 63 not out on Thursday night (September 26) in the Champions League but his heroics with the bat did not earn any leniency from the match referee.
Dhoni was fined $1,500 while the rest of CSK players were docked $750 for maintaining a slow over-rate during their 12-run win over Sunrisers Hyderabad at Ranchi's Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) International Stadium.
SRH skipper Shikhar Dhawan too was found guilty of slow over-rate offence and he too was fined $1,500 and his team-mates $750.
After the calculations of all allowances, both teams were found to be one over short.
This was both Dhoni and Shikhar's first offences under the CLT20's code of conduct.
