Delhi Capitals opener Prithvi Shaw has been reprimanded and fined 25 per cent of his match fee for breaching the IPL Code of Conduct during their six-run loss to Lucknow Super Giants here on Sunday. “Mr Shaw admitted to the Level 1 offence under Article 2.2 of the IPL Code of Conduct and accepted the sanction,” IPL said in a statement. “For Level 1 breaches of the Code of Conduct, the Match Referee’s decision is final and binding.” Level 1 offence pertains to gestures towards umpires or opposition.
