Exactly why he was given a reprimand by match referee Manu Nayyar has not been specified by the IPL.

"MS Dhoni admitted the Level 1 offence (Article 2.1.1) for conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game," read an official IPL statement.

"For Level 1 breaches of the IPL Code of Conduct, the Match Referee’s decision is final and binding," it added.

During the high-octane clash, Dhoni had asked for a DRS referral when it was not for the taking.

The Pune outfit won the game by seven wickets with captain Steven Smith smashing an unbeaten 84 off 54 balls.
