Kolkata dada has been fined by the IPL

Sourav Ganguly,The Kolkata dada has been fined $40,000 by the IPL,for making delay to finish the last couple of overs with Delhi Daredevils

Kolkata were assessed to be two overs behind the required rate after allowances were taken into consideration. Since it was their second offence of the season, Ganguly's team-mates also bore the brunt - each of them were poorer by $10,000.

Right through the tournament, the IPL has come down hard on captains for shoddy over-rates. After the first three games of the 2010 season, four captains - Kumar Sangakkara, Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir and Ganguly - were fined $20,000 each because their teams were not able to complete their overs on time.

Punjab went on to repeat the offence twice, leading to a one-match ban on Sangakkara - a fate that could befall Ganguly if Kolkata slip up again.
