India and England are currently playing their 4th red ball test match at the Narendra Modi stadium. Following the toss, England decided to bat first and put runs on the board. However, after losing some crucial wickets very early in the game, India had almost pinned themselves on the driver’s seat. Having said that, Ben Stokes who arrived no.5 in the middle was seen having some heated conversation with the Indian captain Virat Kohli.
Earlier, when Indian pacer Mohammed Siraj was bowling his spell, England all-rounder Ben Stokes had some animated exchange of words with him too. This gave rise to Virat Kohli stepping in and defending his teammate. Umpires in the middle somehow managed to make peace between both of them but social media cannot make peace with their humour.
