Pandya and Morris got at each other’s face and were involved in a verbal tiff during MI’s chase against RCB. Chasing 165 to win, the incident occurred in the 19th over, when MI needed to knock off 16 runs to remain at the top of the points table and take a huge step towards sealing a playoff berth.

After the first three balls resulted in three runs, Pandya came on strike. Pandya got underneath a fuller delivery from Morris and the batsman dished out his version of the helicopter shot for a six over long on. Both players exchanged some words, which at the moment, did not look serious.

However, the next ball, Morris had Pandya out caught at extra cover where Mohammed Siraj took the catch. While on his way back to the change room, Pandya and Morris were at it again, with the MI allrounder pointing his fingers at Morris this time around.
