Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the former India and Rising Pune Supergiant skipper, has received an official reprimand by the Match Referee  Manu Nayyar for breaching the IPL Code of Conduct during his side’s opening game against Mumbai Indians in Pune on Thursday (April 7).

According to a statement issued by BCCI, Dhoni admitted to the Level 1 offence (Article 2.1.1) for conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game. It further said that in case of Level 1 breaches of the IPL Code of Conduct, the match referee’s decision is final and binding.

For the time being, it is still not clear as to why the India batsman has been reprimanded but it is highly likely that he has received the official warning because of his DRS gesture during the match.

The 35-year old, who was looking in a jovial mood right through the match, had left everyone in splits when he asked for a review during the 15th over of Mumbai Indians’ innings when Imran Tahir appealed for LBW against Kieron Pollard. It was looking close but umpire S Ravi gave his decision in the favour of the batsman, much to the surprise of Dhoni and Tahir. And while the bowler returned to his bowling mark without reacting much, Dhoni sarcastically signalled for a DRS appeal to make it known to the umpire that he did not agree with the decision.
