Chennai Superstars allrounder G Vignesh and Royal Bengal Tigers wicketkeeper Deep Dasgupta were docked 50% of their monthly fees for an on-field altercation during the ICL match in Panchkula on Tuesday.

The pair were involved in an incident after Dasgupta lofted Vignesh for a six in the 13th over. The match referee, former Indian captain Ajit Wadekar, noticed the incident and asked for a report from the on-field umpires. He also conducted an inquiry into the matter with the two players, their captains and coaches, and the three umpires on Wednesday, after which he imposed the fines.

Royal Bengal Tigers stakeholder Mithun Chakraborty said that Dasgupta had been provoked on the field. "It is my opinion that not only the offender but also conspirator is equally guilty," he said. "I am greatly pleased that the ICL disciplinary committee has taken a similar view towards the incident and penalised both players involved, equally."
