Harmeet Singh Bansal of Kings XI Punjab has got an official warning and reprimand for breaching the IPL Code of Conduct during his team's match against Pune Warriors here.
Bansal pleaded guilty to a Level 1 offence (Article 2.1.8), for a breach of match playing conditions clause 42.4.2 when he bowled two high full pitched balls during the 18th over of the Pune Warriors innings last night. For Level 1 breaches of the IPL Code of Conduct, the IPL Match Referee's decision is final and binding.
Harmeet who had taken three Pune Warriors wickets was red carded by the umpire for bowling two successive beamers in the 19th over. This was the turning point of the match since the bowler to replace him -- Bipul Sharma -- was hit for three sixes. 27 runs came off the penultimate over and changed the course of the match.
