On the cricket field, there is often a war of words between bowler and batsman, wicketkeeper and batsman or batsman and fielder. If a war of words is in a limited range, then it is considered good for cricket, but when a bowler hits the ball at the batsman to take out his anger, then it is not right in any sense.
