BCCI takes action against Heinrich Klaseen for publicly attacking the umpire during the SRH-LSG tie

It was a bizarre no-ball call from the third umpire, as the Lucknow Supergiants managed to successfully overturn the umpire's on-field decision. But once a call has been taken, especially by the TV umpire, there is nothing a player can do about it; you have to move on. But Heinrich Klaseen got very angry, and he did not only charge at the umpire after the decision; he publicly attacked the umpire after the end of Sunrisers Hyderabad's innings as the Lucknow Supergiants got a 7-wicket victory over SRH. The BCCI took strict action against Klaseen.
In the mid-innings break, Klaseen, in conversation with the broadcasters, slammed the umpire during the match, saying, "Disappointed with the crowd, to be honest, that's not what you want. That also broke the momentum. Not great umpiring either."
After the end of the match, the BCCI punished the South African batsman with a fine of 10% of his match fees for breaching the IPL code of conduct.
