ENGvsIND: Indian skipper Virat Kohli and English ace pacer James Anderon got engaged in a heated argument during day four of the England vs India Lord’s test match. Kohli, while batting on 10 runs, was heard calling his English counterpart James Anderson, “this isn’t your backyard,” as he was running in the middle of the pitch.
Some fans associated it with the incident that happened last evening when James Anderson was allegedly swearing at Bumrah. 27 years old Jasprit Bumrah had delivered a really nasty over to James Anderson on day three, consisting of bouncers and pin-point yorkers, which initiated the heat between the two players.
The video down below shows one of the exchanges of words between Indian skipper Virat Kohli and English pacer James Anderson.
It is noteworthy that Anderson, 39 years old, sent back the Indian skipper on a golden duck during the first test at Trent Bridge, however, Kohli looked much more comfortable to face the pacer during his short stay in the ongoing Lord’s test match.
Kohli scored 20 runs from 31 balls in his recent outing with the help of four boundaries before he was dismissed by all-rounder Sam Curran. This was one of the rare instances of Virat Kohli losing his concentration despite getting a good start to the innings.
As of now, the match at Lord’s is equally poised with Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane at the middle. India is 78 runs ahead of the home team in the loss of three wickets.
Express England pacer Mark Wood picked up two wickets while all-rounder Sam Curran scalped one.
