Ambati Rayudu and Sheldon Jackson were involved in a heated exchange during the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy game between Baroda and Saurashtra on Wednesday.

Things turned ugly during a Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy Elite Group D game between Saurashtra and Baroda, as Sheldon Jackson and Ambati Rayudu engaged in a heated fight on Wednesday. Jackson, playing for Saurashtra, was batting for the side when the fight took place during the ninth over of the match. The batter marched towards Rayudu, fielding at cover, seemingly after the Baroda captain made a remark towards Jackson.

The umpires and players had to intervene between the two to end the fight, but Rayudu continued to argue with the umpires even as Sheldon returned to the crease. According to the on-air commentator, the fight ensued after Rayudu expressed his displeasure at Jackson taking time to get ready to face the deliveries.
