Mumbai Indians’ batsman Hardik Pandya and Royal Challengers Bangalore’s all-rounder Chris Morris have been reprimanded by the match referee for breaching the IPL’s code of conduct during Mumbai’s five-wicket victory at the Sheikh Zayed stadium in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday (October 28).

The incident appears to have occurred on the fifth ball of the 19th over in Mumbai’s chase when Morris gave Pandya a send-off after getting him out caught, which the batsman responded to rather angrily.

Both players admitted to the charges levelled against them, Morris to the Level 1 offence 2.5 of the IPL’s Code of Conduct and Pandya to the Level 1 offence 2.20 of IPL’s Code of Conduct.

Mumbai Indians currently are at the top of the table with 16 points and on the verge of qualification with two matches to go, while RCB are on second spot with 14 points from 12 matches.
