Indian veteran pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar and English all-rounder David Willey were engaged in an altercation in the last over of the English innings.
It was the last over of the innings and David Willey was on the crease. England were 8 down for 150 odd and they needed an impetus in the last over to take the team to somewhere around 165-170, which would have been a sort of par score.
The first three balls produced just two runs. On the fourth ball, David Willey was at strike. Bhuvneshwar was trying very hard to keep the ball away from Willey so that it did not come in his arc.
Earlier, Jason Roy and Jos Buttler went all guns blazing giving England a great start. Alex Hales then came out to bat but did not look in good touch as he struggled for timing. Captain Eoin Morgan also could not leave a mark.
He tried to bowl a wide line yorker but the ball was pushed just outside the crease. However, Dhoni clapped from the back of the stumps to suggest that Bhuvi was trying well. On the very next delivery as well Bhuvi tried the same and bowled outside the off but this time as well the ball was quite close to the white line and was given a wide.
This left both Dhoni and Bhuvneshwar Kumar quite frustrated as the ball had actually gone under the bat. Bhuvneshwar Kumar stood frustrated at the middle of the pitch.
Just then, David Willey said something to him. Bhuvneshwar was already frustrated and as soon as he heard something, he just lost it. He constantly kept saying ‘what what what ?’ and walked towards David Willey.
