Matt Renshaw Tells Kane Richardson To 'F*** Off' After Catching Him Out
Matt Renshaw and Kane Richardson exchanged words during the heated clash between the Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash League - and it made for excellent viewing.
Richardson has never been one to bite his tongue when it comes to sledging, but it appears he was on the other side of some rather strong verbals this time round with Renshaw shouting "F*** off Richo" as dismissing him.

The Strikers handed the Renegades their seventh defeat of the season after running away with a 60-run victory at Adelaide Oval.
But in the dying embers of the game, things took a sour turn.
With just three overs remaining in the T20 clash, the Renegades needed another 72 runs to reach the 172 target set by the Strikers.
Richardson and fellow batsman Jake Fraser-McGurk needed a miracle.
With Richardson on strike, former Australian Test bowler Peter Siddle steamed in a rapid ball.
And with nothing to lose, Richardson took a wild swing and managed to connect.
Unfortunately for him, his slog landed right in the bread basket of Renshaw who caught him out on the boundary.

As Renshaw was mobbed by his celebrating teammates, he appeared to scream "f*** off, Richo" in his rival's direction as he walked towards the sheds.
Richardson didn't seem too happy at this and the two players continued exchanging more pleasantries.
The confrontation added a bit more fuel to the already-fiery clash, but not everyone was pleased with it.
"I don't think (it's a good look)," Michael Hussey told Fox Cricket after the game.
"But they're professional sportspeople, their emotions get high and sometimes you get hot under the collar.
"I think there was a bit going on from when the Strikers were batting in the first innings and you have a long memory as a player and you sometimes want to give a little back.
"But it's not a good look for the game because there are so many kids at the game and they learn from watching their heroes play and we don't want to be seeing that from the juniors coming through."
