IPL 2016: Kieron Pollard expresses shock over Dwayne Bravo's fine, calls it 'ridiculous'

New Delhi: Mumbai Indians all-rounder Kieron Pollard expressed shock over his compatriot Dwayne Bravo being fined for 50 per cent of his match fee for breaching the Indian Premier League (IPL) Code of Conduct.

A fine was imposed on Bravo for getting close to Pollard and pushing him during Gujarat Lions' match against Mumbai Indians at Green Park Stadium in Kanpur.

Pollard took to Twitter to back Bravo and said he had seen even worse incidents on the field and termed the fine as ridiculous.

Pollard further added that T20 was meant for entertainment and such incidents shouldn't be taken seriously.

Bravo admitted to the Level 2 offence (Article 2.2.7) for inappropriate and deliberate physical contact with a player in the course of play during a match.

For Level 2 breaches of the IPL Code of Conduct, the match referee's decision is final and binding.

Bravo too expressed his disappointment over the incident and clarified that he was best friends with Pollard.
