Bangalore: In a bizzare incident, Mumbai Indians all-rounder Kieron Pollard yesterday put on a tape on his mouth after the umpires rapped him for his onfield altercation with fellow West Indian and Royal Challengers Bangalore batsman Chris Gayle during an IPL match in Bangalore.

Pollard had an argument with Gayle just at the start of the third over during RCB's mammoth chase of a 210-run target set by Mumbai, forcing the onfield umpires Richard Illingworth of England and Vineet Kulkarni to intervene and warn the big West Indian.
A miffed Pollard then went on to the team dug out and pasted tape on his mouth to show his displeasure over the onfield officials wrath.
