29th match in IPL 2016, being conducted with Rising Pune Supergiants and Mumbai Indians, has witnessed an ugly spat between Harbhajan Singh and Ambati Rayudu.
The two MI players were spotted in ugly situation in the 11th over of the Pune innings, when Rayudu failed in stopping a boundary hit by Saurabh Tiwary off Harbhajan despite a brilliant dive near the boundary rope.
Harbhajan who could not take this, was spotted abusing his team-mate, which was sparked the altercation between both the cricketers.
Rayudu, who is in no mood of taking it on lighter mode, gave him back and charged towards Harbhajan, to counter him.
But the matured Sikh player tried to pacify Rayudu, unwilling to create the ugly atmosphere.
The sportive personalities, however, were later seen celebrating with each other, after Harbhajan dismissed Peter Handscomb in his next over.
It is to be recollected, that, in IPL’s first edition, Harbhajan had allegedly slapped pacer S Sreesanth, after MI's defeat to Kings XI Punjab. Even Rayudu has a history of such on-field outburst.
