Viral Moment: Pollard almost hurls bat at Starc during RCB vs MI

Mitchell Starc and Kieron Pollard clashed during the 17th over of the first innings of the Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians IPL 7 match.

Pollard must have been disturbed by someone around the sight-screen and had moved away before the ball was bowled but Starc continued his run-up and delivered it right towards the West Indian's body.

The big hitter was irked by this and almost hurled his bat back at the Australian. For a second it looked as if the bat would fly right at Starc but maybe Pollard just didn't release it on time. The bat hit the pitch and bounced away to the leg-side.
