London: The third test match between India and England is going on. Team India did not start well and already the Indian team lost its three important wickets. In this high profile series, there is no dearth of enthusiasm among the players of both the teams and hence in the second Test, there was a lot of heated exchange between the players of both the teams. At the same time, even after the match, there was a clash between the players on the ground. This has been claimed in a report.
Players clash in long room
After the debate on the ground on the third day of the second Test cricket match, there was a heated argument in the Lord’s Long Room. India won the match by 151 runs by dismissing the entire team of England in the final session on the last day.
According to a report in the Daily Telegraph, “images of players arguing as they exited the field surfaced but the controversy escalated to the long room, which was full of Indian officials, support staff and players, who thrashed their players when they entered. was warmly welcomed.
Kohli and Root had an argument
The report said, ‘It is believed that there was an argument between Joe Root and Virat Kohli, who played an unbeaten 180, while going to the dressing room’.
The Lord’s long room is usually filled with members of the MCC (Marylebone Cricket Club) and both teams walk up separate stairs to their dressing rooms. But last week, due to restrictions related to Kovid-19, the long room, like the players’ dining room, was also closed for members.
The war between the two teams continued for a long time.
“This gave the two teams more opportunities to meet each other at the end of the day, increasing the chances of the on-field sparring going on,” the report said.
On the third day of the game, Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah made frequent bouncers for England’s number 11 batsman and leading pacer James Anderson. India captain Kohli on Tuesday said that his players were provoked by England but he did not mention the words used during this.
