MI batsman also Rohit Sharma angrily reacted to umpire's decision to not give one of the deliveries from Jaydev Unadkat in the final over of the match against RPS on Monday.
The incident happened at the Wankhede Stadium last night when Mumbai needed 17 in the last over bowled by Unadkat while chasing 161 to win.
In the first delivery, Ben Stokes took a brilliant catch in the deep to pack off Hardik Pandya, while the second was heaved over long-on for a six by Rohit.
Having seen Rohit shuffle across the stumps, Unadkat pushed the third delivery of the over wide and Rohit, realising that the ball was veering away from the guideline for wide deliveries, left it alone.
But umpire S Ravi didn’t call it a wide. Disappointed with the decision, Rohit walked up to the umpire and protested angrily, a move for which he was fined 50% of his match fee.
Needing 11 off three balls, Rohit skied the fourth ball and was caught-and-bowled by Unadkat for a 39-ball 58 as Mumbai went down by three runs.
