Angry cricket

When cricketers lost their cool

Their is no shortage of energy, passion and the desire to win in the game of cricket. However, the gentleman’s game is a sport involving the least amount of physical contact with the opposition and some of the hot-headed cricketers can sometimes feel a little deprived of ways to express their emotions to the full extent. (Besides, not everyone is expected to be a Master Blaster who lets his bat do all the talking.) There are times when cricketers lose their cool and the game loses its gentlemanliness. Here’s a look at some famous incidents of cricketers being involved in strong verbal exchanges.
