Rajasthan Royals’ Ravichandran Ashwin has been fined 25 Percent of his match-fee for breaching the IPL Code of Conduct during Match 17 of the TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on April 12.

Ashwin admitted to the Level 1 Offence under Article 2.7 of the IPL’s Code of Conduct. For Level 1 breaches of the Code of Conduct, the Match Referee’s decision is final and binding.

Ravi Ashwin criticised the umpires' decision, highlighting that the Rajasthan Royals were not consulted before the ball was changed and called for standard rules during the post-match press conference in Chennai.

Ashwin won the Player of the Match award for picking up 2 wickets for just 25 runs and hit a 22-ball 30 with the bat as he shone in Rajasthan's first win in Chennai since the inaugural season in 2008. Rajasthan became the first team in IPL 2023 to defend a sub-190 total as their spin trio of Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal and Adam Zampa choked the run flow in the middle overs.

MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja came up with big-hitting at the death as they brought down the equation from 54 in 3 overs to 5 runs in the final delivery. However, Sandeep Sharma executed the yorker perfectly to deny Dhoni a big hit in the thrilling final over.
