Kohli, India fume over DRS verdict in Test

Kohli, India fume over DRS verdict in Test

The ongoing antagonism between Steve Smith and Virat Kohli came to the fore again on Tuesday as Australia stuttered in their pursuit of victory in the second Test.

Smith and Kohli "squared off" in a "verbal stoush" during Australia's first innings, says Cricket.com.au.

While Australian skipper Steven Smith stands first, Kohli stands second on the International Cricket Council's (ICC) Test batting rankings. The Indian No.3 was unbeaten on 79 at stumps and shapes as the key wicket for Smith's men on the fourth day if Australia are to keep the run chase to a manageable target. Seeking guidance from backroom staff on reviews is not allowed.

"The fact that Peter Handscomb is even thinking about telling the Australian captain to turn around and look to the support staff, I've got my concerns". So shouldn't have done that.

"It was a bit of a brain fade and I shouldn't have done that", Smith said.

"I got hit on the pad and looked down to Petey (Handscomb) and he said look up there", Smith said. "I think you all should YouTube that video and I think that says it all", the 28-year-old added.

Umpires quickly sprung into action to gently nudge the batsman away as Indian Kohli vented his fury at the officials. India-Australia matches have always had a heightened element of rancour ever since Sourav Ganguly made Steve Waugh wait for the toss during an ODI in 2001. "But it shouldn't have happened", Smith said. There was a dodgy DRS decision or two, some banter and sledging between the two teams and Ishant Sharma's terrible imitation of Steve Smith's idiosyncracies.

Match referee Chris Broad, reportedly told The Daily Telegraph (Australia) after play, that the only time the umpires were aware of Australians looking up to the dressing room was the Smith incident. Me and Virat had a little chat. Not much in it. "I just try and smile because in my past experience smiling seems to unnerve the bowlers a bit more than talking back, so I was just trying and enjoy it out there and had fun".

"I said "Go" as in "Go have a look at it". On that occasion he started to walk after one replay was flashed up on the ground's scoreboard, acknowledging his fate before ball-tracking replays confirmed the inevitable. "May be I should have just put my hands up and done it (reviewed)", said Smith.
