North Zone batsmen Aakash Chopra and Virat Kohli were fined for unsporting behaviour during their side's 65-run loss to East Zone in the Deodhar Trophy on Saturday. Kohli was docked 50% of his match fees while Chopra was fined 20%, match referee Hemant Wasu said.

Kohli was penalised for a heated exchange of words with Assam medium-pacer Dhiraj Goswami after being caught-and-bowled for 7. Goswami was reprimanded for his role in the incident but was not slapped with a fine.

Chopra got his penalty for dissent; after being adjudged lbw by umpire Suresh Shastri, Chopra showed his bat to the umpire to indicate he had edged the ball.

North have completed both their games in the league phase, and have one win and a loss. Whether they progress to the final on March 18 will depend on the outcome of the Group A match between East and Central at the Ravenshaw College ground.
