Indian players Ravindra Jadeja and Suresh Raina were involved in a heated on-field argument over a dropped catch during India‘s tri-series match against the West Indies on Friday.

India crushed West Indies by 102 runs via Duckworth-Lewis method in a rain-curtailed match but the ugly incident involving the duo seemed to be a blot in an otherwise facile win.

The video footages of the incident had been posted on the YouTube and has seen several hits.

The incident happened after Jadeja dismissed ninth West Indies batsman Sunil Narine caught by Ishant Sharma with the fifth delivery of the 34th over.

After the dismissal, Jadeja was seen walking up to Raina and saying a few things, which the Uttar Pradesh batsman didn’t find amusing. Raina also replied and before things could get out of hand, captain Virat Kohli intervened and told Raina to cool down.

Jadeja was apparently annoyed as Raina failed to judge a catch offered by Narine in his previous over. Jadeja may have also been unhappy that Raina didn’t attempt for a Narine catch earlier, which might have miffed the Saurashtra all-rounder.

After Jadeja dismissed the last batsman with the very next delivery, Raina walked up to Jadeja and tried to patiently tell his junior colleague a few things putting his hand around his neck. Later both were seen chatting and sharing a laugh while leaving the ground.
