Vastavam web: Tension flared up between teammates Ishant Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja during a mid-game break on the fourth day of the second Test between India and Australia here. Ishant and Jadeja were engaged in a heated discussion before two other teammates, including Mohammed Shami, separated them. Though it did not look like a friendly discussion, the reason behind their argument was not clear.
“There’s lots of finger pointing. They were separated on a couple of occasions.” While Ishant played in the first two Tests, Jadeja has been limited to drinks duty and substitute fielding at the Optus Stadium here. Jadeja didn’t find a place in the playing XI, despite Ravichandran Ashwin’s injury, with India going for a four-man pace attack in the Test. India lost the second Test by 146 runs after Australia wrapped up the tail in the morning session.
