ENG vs IND: ‘Shut up, Just Stand and Bat’: Kohli’s Heated Exchange With Jonny Bairstow: Virat Kohli got into an argument with England batsman Jonny Bairstow in the opening overs of the third day’s play at the Edgbaston Test. Indian bowlers Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah were constantly troubling Bairstow with their balls, and during this time, they got into an argument with Kohli.
After Jonny Bairstow said something to the former India captain, Virat Kohli looked unhappy. Even when Bairstow tried to calm things down by patting Kohli on the back, Kohli did not hold back and kept saying something to Bairstow. After this, Bairstow tried to play a shot in the air on the next ball of Shami’s over, but he missed.
Kohli laughed out loud at this too. After the end of the over, he also went to the umpire, and Ben Stokes calmed the matter. Kohli then patted Bairstow on the back. However, later both appeared in a joking mood, and things went back to normal.
