While for the first offense, a fine of Rs. 12 lakh will be imposed on the captain of the IPL team, the amount will be double for the second offense. For the third offense, the amount will increase to Rs. 30 lakh, and the captain will also face a one-match ban. The BCCI is all set to host the IPL at home, with the health and safety of players and all people involved being paramount.
