The ongoing India Australia series has had a number of flashpoints and controversies both on and off the pitch. (WATCH Jadeja, Wade and Smith engage in a heated war of words !)
The likes of Virat Kohli and Steve Smith have made front page news not due to their cricketing feats but through their various controversial statements on the pitch.
The ICC, BCCI and Cricket Australia have also got involved in the verbal tussles that seem to have overshadowed the quality of cricket on display in the previous three test matches. (WATCH Jadeja, Wade and Smith engage in a heated war of words !)
And this does not seem to be stopping either as Ravindra Jadeja got involved in a heated war of word with Matthew Wade and Steve Smith in the fourth test in Dharamsala. (WATCH Jadeja, Wade and Smith engage in a heated war of words !)
Wade: Wait till you come down here (Jadeja was at the non-striker’s end) and say it.
Jadeja: murmurs something
Wade: Say it when you come down here, mate.
Ian Gould: Ahh! Excuse me. Ravindra! Come here. Now, there’s no point in starting something.
Jadeja: If he starts it, I’ll give it back. I don’t care.
Wade: No no, now go on and get a selfie with him at the end of the game.
Gould: Alright, let’s finish please.
Wade: Put it on Instagram as soon as the game finishes.
Smith: You know this is his last Test for a while. They go away now.
Gould: Mate, are you going to stop that?!
Wade: Careful of that sword too, Gunner (Gould).
Jadeja: I don’t understand why the Australian selectors pick you (Wade) for Test.
Wade: Is that right? I don’t understand why they pick you outside India.
Jadeja: You don’t deserve to play in white clothes.
Wade: How come you don’t get picked? Why is that?
Smith: You don’t deserve to play anywhere but here.
Jadeja: I play in India.
Wade: Well bowled Gary. You’re good in all conditions.
Wade: These two will play. Like every other time they go overseas.”
