"Gautam Gambhir of Kolkata Knight Riders was fined 15 per cent of his match fee for breaching the Indian Premier League code of conduct during his team's match against Royal Challengers Bangalore at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Monday evening," the IPL said in a statement.

Gambhir was seen kicking a chair during KKR's win over Royal Challengers Bangalore. "Gambhir admitted the Level 1 offence (Article 2.1.8) of abuse of cricket equipment or clothing, ground equipment or fixtures and fittings during a match. For Level 1 breaches of the IPL code of conduct, the match referee's decision is final and binding," the IPL stated.

Kohli, meanwhile, was fined after his team maintained a slow over rate during the match. Since it was his second offence of the season under the IPL code of conduct relating to over-rate offences, Kohli was fined Rs 24 lakh, while the rest of the team was fined Rs 6 lakh each, or 25 per cent of their match fee.
