We couldn’t apply ourselves in second innings: Virat Kohli

Arrogant worlds worst behaved player Naseeruddin Shah slams Virat Kohli

Mumbai: Veteran actor Nasseruddin Shah slammed Virat Kohli for his verbal spat with Australian captain Tim Paine. The argument looked to be a pretty serious one with a lot of finger pointing involved in the act. "They were separated on a couple of occasions", Ponting said.

While Lyon picked up a five-wicket haul in the first innings, Australia just needed the three quicks in Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins to complete the job.

Kohli and Paine exchanged barbs, at one point prompting intervention from the umpire, during the game that Australia won by 146 runs on Tuesday to level the four-match series 1-1.

Jadeja, nicknamed "Rockstar" by former Rajasthan teammate Shane Warne during the inaugural Indian Premier League season because of his enormous confidence, is a fiery customer who had a verbal stoush with Matthew Wade during last year's test series in India.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) says Kohli did not tell Paine he is "just a stand-in captain" during the second Test.

Shah's words "I have no intention to leave the country", was also another jibe at Kohli, referring to an old tweet where the Indian captain had asked a fan to leave the country when he said that he likes English and Australian batsmen more than the Indian batsmen.

Then during today's opening session the duo verbally sparred again, with umpire Chris Gaffaney stepping in to keep the two apart.

Most notably, perhaps, was the milestone it represented for Australia as it was their first Test-match victory since March's ball tampering saga.

The two captains played down the exchanges.

Virat Kohli and Tim Paine stood chest-to-chest in Perth, but Paine says they didn't actually make contact. Yesterday, matters got quite heated after Kohli questioned Paine's technique. "And no personal attacks", added Kohli.

Jasprit Bumrah had said after the third day's play that India were surprised that the soft signal, in the case of the low catch to dismiss Kohli, was out, but Kohli seemed to have gotten over it by the end of the match.

"Stump mics and cameras. these things are totally irrelevant", he said.

"It stays on the field".
