It got pretty close. It was a highly competitive Test match from both teams. There's a lot on the line and both teams desperately want to win and sometimes that stuff happens" Paine said in the post-match press conference. <p></p> <p></p>"I love it. I enjoy watching Kohli, I always have. I think he brings out the competitive spirit in a lot of people which is great, and I'm sure it was great to watch. <p></p> <p></p><strong>ALSO READ: <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/india-vs-australia-2018-lowdown-of-ishant-sharma-and-ravindra-jadejas-on-field-fight-at-perth-780176">Lowdown of Ishant Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja s on-field fight at Perth</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>"I was really proud of the way our team conducted themselves on the field this week.
