Legends of the game are facing off against one another in the second season of Legends League Cricket, and the competition has been fierce with everyone putting out their best effort. However, on Sunday, things took a turn for the worst when India Capitals pacer Mitchell Johnson and Bhilwara Kings all-rounder Yusuf Pathan got into a physical fight in the middle of the field.
The incident’s footage is currently trending on social media. First, Pathan and Johnson got into a furious verbal battle in which both of them nearly collided. The umpires were then forced to step in to separate Johnson and Yusuf after Johnson shoved Yusuf. After defeating Bhilwara Kings by four wickets in a dramatic qualifier on Sunday at the Barkatullah Khan Stadium in Jodhpur, India Capitals advanced to the Legends League Cricket final thanks to the half-centuries of former New Zealand captain Ross Taylor and West Indies star Ashley Nurse. Taylor scored 84 runs in 39 balls, including nine fours and five huge sixes, and Nurse hit an unbeaten 60. His 28-ball magnificent innings included five fours and four sixes, as India Capitals comfortably chased down the season’s highest mark with three balls remaining.
Table-toppers India Capitals responded effectively while pursuing Bhilwara Kings’ total of 226-5 in a matchup between the league’s Top-2 clubs. Ross Taylor, who was scoring quickly and keeping the team in the game, hit the league’s quickest fifty in just 20 balls before being caught by Sudeep Tyagi on 84 with the team still needing 59 runs from 29 balls. After Taylor left, Liam Plunkett and Ashley Nurse continued the challenge for India Capitals by controlling the necessary run pace. Nurse hit back-to-back big sixes to help his side cross the finish line when eight runs were needed off just five deliveries, and he also finished off his half-century in style.
