Argument erupted when Australia was batting
The row occurred during the second session of fourth day's play when Australia was batting.
It's believed that Ishant wanted Jadeja, one of the best Indian fielders, to stand at a particular position, a relatively dead position on the cricket field, where the latter didn't want to go.
This erupted in a silent war between them, which remained like that for quite a while.
