Pune: The Indian Premier League (IPL) on Sunday witnessed another ugly fight on the field. The 29th match of IPL 2016 between the Rising Pune Supergiants and the Mumbai Indians witnessed a heated argument between Mumbai Indians (MI) players Harbhajan Singh and Ambati Rayudu.
The incident took place in the 11th over of the Pune innings when Rayudu failed to stop a boundary at deep midwicket despite an audacious effort. Harbhajan yelled at Rayudu and Rayudu also shouted back at the off-spinner.
This was not the first time when Harbhajan Singh was seen engaged in an on-field clash. He had earlier slapped pacer S. Sreesanth after the Mumbai Indians lost to Kings XI Punjab in the first edition of IPL Season 1.
