Nitish Rana, skipper of Kolkata Knight Riders and Hrithik Shokeen of Mumbai Indians were involved in a heated exchange of words in an IPL match on Sunday.

The incident happened in the ninth over of KKR innings after Shokeen dismissed Rana cheaply for 5 runs. As Rana was walking back, Shokeen said something and the KKR skipper turned around and also gave it back to the bowler.

MI’s stand-in skipper Suryakumar Yadav and Piyush Chawla intervened and calmed things down.

Rana and Shokeen play for Delhi in domestic cricket and reportedly both the players are not on talking terms.

Shokeen had a great day in the park as he returned figures of 2 for 34 in four overs.
