Shocking new audio has emerged from India's Ishant Sharma and teammate Ravindra Jadeja's fiery coming together during their second Test defeat in Australia.
The incident came about during Australia’s second innings on day four in Perth when cameras picked up footage of the pair arguing near the crease.
Little more was known about the argument until it was revealed in a report by the West Australian that microphones by the stumps picked up every word, and the argument was as fiery as it looked.
Translating what was said during the argument, this is what was said...
“Don’t wave your hand at me. If you want something, come to me and say it,“ Sharma said to Jadeja.
Jadeja responded: “Why are you saying so much?”.
“Don’t wave your hand at me. Don’t take out your anger on me,” Sharma replied.
“I’ll take your anger and shove it up your arse. I will shove your anger up your arse ... don’t talk bull****.”
Shocking behaviour from two professionals that know full well their actions are going to be picked up, especially in a televised game.
The fiery exchange has raised questions of the India team and where this crazy incident came from.
Australian legend Ricky Ponting was as confused as anyone else watching on.
“Who knows what they are talking about but it does seem pretty animated. There’s lots of finger pointing. They were separated on a couple of occasions,” Ponting said.
Jadeja is a fiery player who has previous for on-pitch bust-ups, having it out with Matthew Wade during last year’s Test series in India.
India went onto to lose the second Test by 146 runs to level the series at 1-1.
Most notably, perhaps, was the milestone it represented for Australia as it was their first Test-match victory since March's ball tampering saga.
Melbourne is the next destination for these two countries as Test three opens on Boxing Day, where India will want to show a far more united front.News Now - Sport News
