Netizens react after Yusuf Pathan, Mitchell Johnson engage in an aggressive argument


At a qualifying game of the Legends League Cricket on Sunday between Bhilwara Kings and India Capitals at the Barkatullah Khan Stadium in Jodhpur, Mitchell Johnson and Yusuf got into a furious argument. After Johnson had dismissed Yusuf with the final delivery of the 19th over of the BK innings, the incident occurred. Yusuf had hammered Johnson for 6, 4, and 6 off the first three deliveries of the over, but things became ugly when he picked out the fielder at deep mid-wicket to lose his wicket.

Yusuf did not appreciate what Johnson, a former Australia fast, had to say as he was spotted saying a few words at him. Yusuf was upset and approached Johnson to respond, but as he was doing so, the two continued their chirping. It got to the point where the two former cricket players collided nearly immediately after coming face to face. Johnson reacted when Yusuf encroached and pushed the departing batter. While the fielders watched, the former India all-rounder did not back down and continued to verbally attack Johnson before the two were separated by the on-field umpire.
