Throughout the course of the cricketing history, Indo-Pak contests produced a number of enthralling as well as controversial moments on the cricketing field. One unfortunate event was witnessed in the Bengaluru T20I during Pakistan’s 2012-13 tour of India when wicket-keeper batsman Kamran Akmal and paceman Ishant Sharma shared a duel.
Recently, the Pakistani star cricketer reviewed the joust and shared the inside story of the verbal fight. The 37-year old cricketer said that Ishant bowled him a beautiful in-swinger which got the better of him, followed by the tall quick coming to Kamran and verbally abusing him. This obviously didn’t go down well with Kamran who was found equal to the task. Nevertheless, the matter was iced up by involvement of other cricketers.

The Lahore born further revealed that the next day Ishant shared the complete matter including his comments with his teammates Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina who jokingly said that Kamran was right to abuse you back. While it all ended well, but Kamran admitted that things could have gotten ugly if it wasn’t for the intervention of fellow cricketers.
