Harshit Rana, one of the emerging fast bowlers in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), will not play for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) when they take on Mumbai Indians in Match 51 of the IPL 2024 at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.

The 22-year-old has also been fined 100% of match fees after the Delhi Capitals' fixture, which they won by seven wickets, for breaching 'IPL Code of conduct.'

After dismissing Abhishek Porel on Monday, Rana gave him a half-hearted flying kiss and gave an angry send-off. The IPL governing committee looked into the matter, and, hence, charged him for that.

"Mr Harshit Rana, Bowler, Kolkata Knight Riders has been fined 100 per cent of his match fees and suspended for one match for breaching the IPL Code of Conduct during Match 47 of the TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 against Delhi Capitals at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata on April 29, 2024," an IPL statement read. "Rana committed a Level 1 offence under Article 2.5 of the IPL's Code of Conduct. He admitted to the offence and accepted the Match Referee’s sanction. For Level 1 breaches of the Code of Conduct, the Match Referee's decision is final and binding."

Rana was earlier given a warning after giving a flying kiss to Mayank Agarwal as a send-off. He was penalised as well, although it was not as hefty as it was yesterday’s penalty.
