Top 5 Fights In IPL History

The Indian Premier League (IPL) is known for its high-octane cricket matches, but it has also witnessed some intense on-field altercations over the years. From verbal spats to physical altercations, the IPL has seen it all. Here are the top 5 fights in IPL:

Kohli Vs Gambhir & Naveen Ul Haq:

In the 43rd match of the IPL 2023, things got heated between Kohli and Naveen Ul Haq on the field, which led to Gautam Gambhir also getting involved in the fight. The altercation started when Naveen Ul Haq came to bat, and Kohli welcomed him with a little sledge. Naveen didn’t hold back as he also said a few words. After the match, when players were shaking hands, Naveen and Kohli again got into a little verbal fight, later Mayers also got involved in a rather intense conversation with Kohli, which led Gambhir to lose his cool as he went straight to Kohli, and both got into a little argument.

Harbhajan Vs Sreesanth:

The 2008 edition of the IPL saw one of the most infamous fights in IPL history when Harbhajan Singh of the Mumbai Indians slapped S. Sreesanth of the Kings XI Punjab after the match. The altercation was purportedly sparked by an on-field spat between the two players earlier in the game, and Sreesanth was spotted crying following the event. Following the incident, Harbhajan was suspended for the entire season.

Pollard Vs Starc

Kieron Pollard of the Mumbai Indians threw his bat toward Mitchell Starc of the Royal Challengers Bangalore during an IPL 2014 match. Starc bowled a short ball, and Pollard failed to connect; Starc muttered a few comments to him, but Pollard ignored him. On the next delivery, when Starc was halfway through his bowling, Pollard pulled off, triggering Starc and prompting him to throw the ball despite Pollard pulling off, provoking Pollard to toss his bat towards Starc. However, the bat did not hit Starc as it slipped from Pollard’s hands.

Kohli Vs Gambhir

The roots of this Kohli-Gambhir rivalry go way back to 2013. In a match between RCB and KKR in IPL 2013, when Kohli was walking out after getting caught at the deep cover Gambhir said a few words, and Kohli didn’t hesitate to give him back as he stopped and walked towards Gambhir. Players had to separate the two before things got nasty.
