Thinking the wicketkeeper had lost sight of the ball, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/virat-kohli/" target="_blank">Virat Kohli</a> stole a bye. In the next over both players were at each other s throat, a sight we often see when Kohli plays against Australia.</p> <p></p>Wade chirped a few words, first ruffling the feathers. I might have a cry like you. I might go to the dressing rooms and have a good cry like you. Everyone has to feel sorry for you, Wade started. <p></p> <p></p>Kohli, known for playing fire with fire, gave it back. However, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/australia-in-india-2017-200780/live-scores/india-vs-australia-live-cricket-score-2nd-odi-match-184282-full-scorecard.html" target="_blank">it never led to an altercation</a>. <p></p> <p></p>To simplify the situation, Kohli did not know whether Wade was hurt. He rightfully took that bye. Former Australia pacer Stuart Clark, in a report published by <i>Indian Express</i>, voiced his support. He misfielded one. Whether the Indian batsman knew he was injured or not was probably a secondary question. It s one run. Is this the biggest issue this team has got? If I m Matthew Wade and I m Marcus Stoinis and full credit to him for standing up for Matthew Wade I d be worried about my own cricket, rather than all this other stuff. This is piddly crap. <p></p> <p></p>Clark also funnily adds that Kohli thrives when someone has a fight with him: I wouldn t be saying too much to Virat Kohli. He seems to want to fight with everyone and he seems to play ten times better when he does fight with people.
