Meanwhile, the commentator Michael Holding was also surprised by the incident. “Well that doesn’t look like a very friendly conversation, does it?” said Michael Holding said in a commentary. “I’m not sure what started it, but hopefully it will end soon.”
On the other hand, former England captain Nasser Hussain said: “England’s hot in the weather and not feeling well. I’m pleased that a few words were exchanged, to be honest. (They’ve) got a problem with each other, Broad has said something in the huddle that Stokes is not amused with and England’s vice-captain picks him up on it. I don’t mind that at all.”
England is now on the bat and is struggling against the decisive bowling of South Africa, but the target to achieve is not that hard for the World Champions.
