Jaipur, April 9 (IANS) Rajasthan Royals captain Rahul Dravid has been fined $20,000 after his side maintained a slow over-rate during their Indian Premier League (IPL) match against Kolkata Knight Riders here.

At the end of the match Monday, Rajasthan Royals were assessed to be two overs shy of the required rate after allowances were taken into consideration.

Since it was his first offence of the season under IPL's Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offences, Dravid was fined only $20,000.

For the second offence, he can be fined $40,000 while a third one would lead to a fine of $50,000 and a one-match ban.
