India vs Aus: Ishant Sharma and Jadeja Fight on The Field
Verbal exchanges are common occurrences during any tour to Australia. The ongoing banter between Indian captain Virat Kohli and his Australian counterpart Tim Paine is the case in point.
That being said, it is not often that you see players from the same side having a go at each other. Indian fast bowler Ishant Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja, who was on the field as a substitute had a pretty animated discussion on the field on the 4th day afternoon of the Perth test.
During the drinks break session, Ishant and Jadeja ran towards each and exchanged severe words. In fact, at one point in time, Ishant was expected to raise his hand on Jadeja. They had to be separated by Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammed Shami. The video of both the players abusing each other is going viral in social media.
However, the ICC did not impose any sanction on the players as Jadeja was not part of the playing eleven. India lost the second Test by 146 runs after Australia wrapped up the tail in the morning session.
