IPL is known for its nail-bitting finishes and for its thrills. Sometimes during the matches it gets so intense that players are known to loose their cool. Recently we all witnessed M.S. Dhoni aka Captain Cool, loosing it in the field. And on some level we can all understand. A gentleman’s play sometimes turns out to be foul.
Here is a list of the most heated fights in IPL.
1. S Sreesanth vs Harbhajan Singh:
This incident took place after the match when Sreesanth had extended his hand as a mark of respect but Bhajji slapped Sreesanth. The reasons for the slap is still unknown. Harbhajan was banned for IPL season after that.
2. Sourav Ganguly vs Shane Warne:
This fight happened in the very first season. The arguement was about a catch. Ganguly was given a not out by the umpire which led to heated words between Shane and Ganguly.
3. Kieron Pollard vs Dwayne Bravo:
