Mumbai: May 6, 2014

The Indian Premier League (IPL) clash between defending champions Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore in Mumbai on Tuesday had its share of controversy owing to an ugly on-field spat between Kieron Pollard and Mitchell Starc.

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.

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.

A fuming Pollard had a word with the umpire complaining about the bowler’s conduct.

In the previous ball, after bowling a bouncer that sailed over Pollard’s head, Starc mouthed something which the big-built West Indian simply brushed away with a wave of his hand.

After the bat lay on the turf, the two on-field umpires intervened to talk to the two angry players as Chris Gayle, playing for RCB, came on to calm his West Indian teammate.
