We often get to see many incidents in the cricketing field and players engaging in heated verbal fights are one of the common things as well. And, one incident have recently happened where Ambati Rayudu and Sheldon Jackson had an intense verbal spat during SMAT 2022 on Wednesday, which caused everyone on the field to get involved as well.
Meanwhile, Saurashtra beat Baroda by four wickets in their Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy match at the Holkar Cricket Stadium on Wednesday. Baroda, while batting first, put up 175/4, courtesy of Mitesh Patel’s 35-ball 60 and Vishnu Solanki’s 31-ball 53. In reply, Saurashtra reached the finish line with two balls to spare on the back of Samarth Vyas’ 52-ball 97 as well.
However, during the ninth over of Saurasthra’s innings, an ugly incident took place involving Baroda skipper Ambati Rayudu and Saurashtra skipper Sheldon Jackson. While fielding at short cover, Rayudu stated that the on-strike Jackson was taking too long to get ready to face the upcoming delivery as well. He then remarked and mentioned the same, which caused him to walk towards the Baroda skipper.
The on-field umpires then rushed towards them to handle the situation on the field, while Krunal Pandya joined them in a hurry to handle the matter as well. But, even after the duo was separated by the umpires, they kept pointing towards each other and exchanging heated words as well.

Tough day for Vidarbha in #SMAT2022 #T20. Rajasthan chased 137-run target with 9 wkts & 27 balls to spare. None of Vidarbha plans materialized. Batters choked as a result bowlers did have much to defend. But there cud have been a better bowling show than this #SMAT20 @TOI_Nagpur
