New Hopes New Visions

Indian captain Virat Kohli and England all-rounder Ben Stokes are among the most animated cricketers in the world. The two players don’t shy away from having a go at their opponents and are often seen engaged in a war of words. However, on Day 1 of the India vs England 4th Test, things heated up as it was Kohli and Stokes who were involved in a fiery verbal skirmish.
It all happened in the 13th over when Mohammed Siraj bowled a bouncer to Ben Stokes and stared at the batsman. In response, Stokes said a few words but Siraj refrained from responding. However, Kohli wasn’t going to let Stokes get away with it as he furiously approached him and what followed was a fiery exchange of words. Things got a little intense which resulted in umpires Nitin Menon and Virender Sharma’s intervention to separate the two.
The incident didn’t end there as Kohli once again had a go at Stokes while the Englishman was on his way back to the crease. Umpire Virender Sharma once again had to step in cool things down. Moments after the Kohli-Stokes incident, Siraj got into a verbal exchange with the all-rounder after he edged a couple of balls that went to the boundary.
