The incident took place after the match when players and support staff members were shaking hands.
The match didn’t go as planned for MI, who conceded to their fifth loss in as many games this season.
Batting first, PBKS scored 198/5 in 20 overs. Openers Mayank Agarwal and Shikhar Dhawan played their part to perfection and scored incredible fifties each.
In reply, MI tried their level best to chase down the target but were restricted to 186/9 in 20 overs, handing PBKS a 12-run win eventually.
MI will next play Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on April 16. PBKS, on the other hand, will face SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) on April 17 at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai.
