Cricketer Munaf Patel wished Amit Mishra on his 36th birthday in the most unexpected way. Munaf posted a picture from their altercation back in 2011 during an Indian Premier League (IPL) match. "Happy birthday angry young man????????," wrote Munaf.
The incident took place during a game between Mumbai Indians and Deccan Chargers. It was the last over of Chargers' innings when Munaf foul-mouthed Mishra after he hit him for a six and a four.
The game is remembered for that very incident. Mishra had hit Munaf for four consecutive fours in the last over. There was some more war of words in the next few deliveries.
Munaf had lost his rhythm and he bowled two low full tosses and a wide, slower one in the last three balls, conceding 23 runs in the final over.
That over cost Mumbai the game as they ended up losing by 10 runs. Apart from 6-ball 16, Mishra also bowled well and picked up one wicket giving away just 18 runs in four overs.
