In the match at the Eden Gardens, KKR suffered a two-wicket loss on the last ball after posting a huge total of 223/6 as Rajasthan Royals equalled the record for the highest successful run-chase in the IPL, chasing down 224 for the victory, courtesy of Jos Buttler's unbeaten century (107 off 60). The Indian Premier League statement read, "As it was his team’s first offence of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to a minimum over-rate offences, Iyer was fined Rs 12 lakhs."
