#10 Pollard hurls the bat at Starc
In a heated altercation at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, things turned for the worse when Kieron Pollard hurled his bat on the ground out of sheer disgust. It all started when Mitchell Starc dug in a bouncer, which missed Pollard’s bat.
Starc followed it up with some stern words and Pollard gestured him away. In the next delivery, the West Indian pulled out of his stroke with Starc on the verge of delivering the ball, however, the bowler released the ball, following which an enraged Pollard flung his bat on the turf.
