Heated 'Cricket' moments: When playing field turned battleground!
Cricket is often touted as 'The gentleman's game', but more often it gets surrounded for 'totally being not'!
On ground, players put up their best effort to win, and there is no doubt to that but sometimes controversies too strike, dragging the intention of them game to low levels.
