The umpires have a chat with Pollard during the final BCCI

Kieron Pollard has been fined 25% of his match fee for showing dissent at an umpire's decision in the final of IPL 2019.

Pollard, who scored an unbeaten 41, was visibly unhappy with a decision made by umpire Nitin Menon in the final over of Mumbai's innings. The umpire's decision to not adjudge a delivery by Dwayne Bravo as wide irked Pollard. Mocking the decision, Pollard went on to take strike well away from the stumps and near the 'wide-line' before pulling away as the bowler ran in.

This prompted both the on-field umpires, Menon and Ian Gould, to have a chat with Pollard who went on to his normal stance and complete the innings.

Although the offence wasn't explicitly specified, IPL released a statement after the final specifying the fine and that Pollard hadn't contested the sanction.

"Mr Pollard admitted to the Level 1 offence 2.8 of the IPL Code of Conduct for Players and Team Officials and accepted the sanction," read the statement.
