The Indian Premier League (IPL) 7 clash between defending champions Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore in Mumbai had its share of controversy owing to an ugly on-field spat between Kieron Pollard and Mitchell Starc. As the Aussie fired the ball at Pollard, the batsman advanced menacingly towards Starc and flung his willow at the bowler but, luckily, it slipped out of the Trinidadian’s hand and dropped near him.

 

It happened in the 17th over of the MI innings when RCB’s Starc continued with his delivery despite the batsman pulling out of his strike. Amul ads, that come up with banners on current events also turned their attention towards the ugly spat. Their latest caricature is sure to induce some sniggers in the cricket community.
