When you have the likes of Chris Gayle (the Gangnam Style), Harbhajan Singh (the Bhangnam Style), AB de Villiers (Steyn demolition) and Yuvraj Singh (a bad debt) playing against each other; chances are rare that limelight would shift away from them.
But Kieron Pollard is in a league of his own and his incident yesterday involving RCB’s Mitchell Starc was also in a league of its own. The on-the-pitch bust up led to a massive increase in the duo’s mentions online as the fingers typed at a supersonic speed to let the others know their views on the incident.

Although RCB lost to Mumbai Indians with a considerable margin for a T20 game, the Vijay Mallya owned team can find solace in the fact that they had more number of mentions than the men in blue.
