The 2022 edition of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy is underway, but it’s not just the racquets and balls that get the conversation started as the tournament begins. During a game between Baroda and Saurashtra on Wednesday, Ambati Rayudu and Sheldon Jackson got into a heated on-field debate that forced the on-field referee and other players to step in and separate them. Video of the heated argument between the two cricketers has gone viral on the internet.

The Elite Group D match between Surashtra and Baroda took an unexpected turn as Rayudu and Sheldon marched towards each other, unhappy about an incident. It was said that Baroda skipper Rayudu had said something to Jackson which infuriated the wicket-keeper’s batsman.

Here is the video of the incident:

The video shows that the referee and other surrounding players acted in good time and prevented the dispute from escalating further.

As for the match, Baroda brought a score of 175 runs to the board while batting first. Mitesh Patel was the top pick for the team with a score of 60 runs from just 35 balls.


Saurashtra chased the target and saw Samarth Vyas put on a resounding show with the racquet, scoring 97 runs from just 52 balls. Though he missed completing a century, his effort with the bat was enough to bring Saurashtra home.

Vyas was the lone warrior of his side as none of the other batsmen made it to the 20-run mark.
