Ind-Aus Test: Ishant Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja engage in nasty fight

In the ongoing Test series of India v/s Australia in Perth, the Aussies crushed the Indians in the second Test today.

Apart from the defeat, what caught people's eye was an altercation that broke out between top players Ishant Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja.

A video of their scuffle had gone viral, but has now been pulled out from all major sources on Internet.

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.

Argument

Shami and Yadav had to intervene and separate Ishant, Jadeja

They finally returned to exchange words with each other and the argument escalated pretty soon.

While it cannot be determined the exact words that were exchanged, but their altercation reached such a level that it needed Mohammed Shami and Kuldeep Yadav to come and separate the two.

Notably, Jadeja was on the field as a substitute player.

Ricky Ponting gives a cheeky commentary on the tiff

Meanwhile, on the commentary session, Aussie legend and former Australian captain Ricky Ponting, who was on the mike, said, "Who knows what they're talking about. It does seem very animated, there's lots of finger-pointing." An update regarding the incident is likely to come up soon.
