Over the years we have seen some unfortunate moments take place on the Cricket field. Funny banter has sometimes led to sledging and then even worse. Cricketers try to perform at the best of their abilities and sometimes the emotions get the better of them. They are involved in heated arguments with the opposition players which isn’t a great sight for the world to see. Tempers fly high and occasionally they are even close to exchanging blows on the cricket field. There have been several famous cricket fights in the history of the game.
Cricket is a gentleman’s game and the players are invariably asked to follow the rules and regulations and avoid fights on the field. But ultimately sometimes while playing for their countries the players wear hearts on their sleeves and end up having aggrieved discussions. Nobody wants to lose at any cost and in the process, the passionate players have every so often have stepped over the line. We try to dig some of the most piping hot instances in the history of cricket which two cricketers almost fought in front of the world.

10. Ishant Sharma and Kamran Akmal
India vs Pakistan the fiercest rivalry in Cricket and to be fair when the two nations clash it’s more than just a game of Cricket. 2012 on the day of Christmas the two nations met in a T20 match at Bengaluru. Ishant Sharma and Kamran Akmal had enough of each other and the two almost knocked each other out in the middle of the 22 yards.
The two umpires and rest of the players tried taking each other from each other as things could have gone even worse. It felt as if the crowd as seeing a heavyweight bout between two boxers as they stood face to face against each other. Luckily the two realised that this isn’t helping either side and calmed down and the match continued again.
