Mumbai: Pace legend Courtney Walsh said the despicable on-field spat between West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard and Australian seamer Mitchell Starc during an Indian Premier League match was not a pretty sight and called for "controlled aggression" from cricketers.
"I was travelling and saw it on YouTube, so I can't say exactly the whole build up of it. It didn't look a pretty sight when you saw it but in the heat of the moment, these things sometimes do happen. For me it is how it ends. If both players will accept their responsibility in terms of what happened," Walsh told reporters here at the Superpacer event.
"That is not what you want to see on field of play and that is what you want youngsters to watch and think that is the norm. Hopefully things have been sorted out and whatever action needs to be taken has been taken and we can return to normalcy," he added.
