The ongoing Test sequence between India and England has seen its fair proportion of drama, and it continued in the fourth and final Test being performed on the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. There was a heated dialogue between Virat Kohli and Ben Stokes within the first session on Day 1 and the umpires needed to intervene and separate the 2. The incident occurred after the England all-rounder had simply come into bat, with Mohammed Siraj having dismissed Joe Root.
Siraj, on the ultimate ball of the identical over that he trapped Root leg-before, fired in a bouncer, following which Stokes mentioned one thing to the seamer.
Kohli quickly got here in to have a phrase with the all-rounder and his batting companion Jonny Bairstow. While Kohli was seen having a little bit snort at the beginning, the dialog carried on for some time and the umpire was seen making an attempt to separate the 2, even signalling an invisible wall between them.

The banter carried on, as later, Kohli was heard telling Pant to maintain the chatter up whereas Stokes was batting.
England gained the toss and opted to bat, however India quickly had their first breakthrough as a rampant Axar Patel struck together with his second supply of the match to take away Dom Sibley.
Sibley’s opening companion Crawley tried to counter the spin menace by being aggressive, however miscued an aerial shot to mid-off.
Siraj, taking part in rather than Jasprit Bumrah, then bought the massive wicket of Joe Root to place England to the sword.
However, Stokes and Bairstow put up an excellent partnership to take England to Lunch at 74-3.
