Virat Kohli's 'Chest Bump' With Tim Paine Produces More Heat Than The Scorching Sun At Perth

Sign in to follow this  


Ever since he took over the reins from MS Dhoni as captain, Virat Kohli, with his majestic batting and unmatched leadership, has helped the Indian cricket team in scaling new heights in international cricket. His aggressive brand of cricket has now become one of India's most influential tools to upstage the opposition.

Not one to back down from a fight on the field, the Indian captain has often been seen dishing out perfect responses to those who've tried to provoke him with words. 

The ongoing four-match Test series between India and Australia was expected to produce an exciting contest, not just with the bat and the ball, but also with verbal volleys. However, the first Test hardly had any confrontations or altercations on the field and the second match in Perth was also pretty clean in that regard, until the fourth day's play.

Early on Day 4, the 71st over bowled by Jasprit Bumrah saw a rare clash of the captains of the two sides. The first delivery of the over saw the Australian skipper pushing the ball for a quick single towards midwicket, where Kohli ran towards the pitch in anticipation of collecting the ball and came extremely close to Paine before he could reach the non-striker's end.

The incident irked Paine who was seen following Kohli for a couple of steps for a few words as the Indian captain made his way towards his fielding position for the next delivery. "I'm not saying a word to you, why are you getting riled up?" Kohli was quoted as saying by ESPNCricinfo.

Virat Kohli and Tim Paine are back at it!

The two have locked horns again as tension builds on the 4th day of the 2nd Test.

In reply, Paine said: "I'm fine. You're the one that lost it yesterday, why are you trying to be cool today?". This is when umpire Chris Gaffaney intervened and said: "Oi, that's enough, that's enough". "We're allowed to talk," Paine replied to the on-field umpire. "Nah, nah, come on, play the game. You guys are the captains," Gaffaney added further.

"We can have a conversation. There's no swearing, no," Paine said. "Tim, you're the captain," Gaffaney responded. In his final comment to Kohli, Paine said: "Keep your cool, Virat". If the verbal exchange wasn't enough, the two skippers, then, faced-off with a 'chest bump' on the final delivery of the 71st over.

Paine had punched the ball for another run towards mid-on where Kohli was fielding. While Paine was completing his run, Kohli came running in and collided with the Australian skipper. While the duo didn't exchange words at that time, their 'chest bump', once again, got the on-field umpire giving some words of wisdom to the two captains.

After Lunch on Day 4, Mohammed Shami spelt trouble for the Australian skipper with a nasty short ball. As Paine tried to get out of the way, he gloved the ball in the air before, who else, but Kohli completed a simple catch. As the Aussie leader began his long back towards the pavilion, Kohli had a few more words to say to the 34-year-old which made him turn around for a reply.

Apart from that, the duo had earlier been recorded exchanging words after a caught-behind appeal against Australian captain was turned down on the third day. Walking past Paine, Kohli said to his Team India mates: "If he (Paine) messes it up, it's 2-0". In reply, Paine said: "You've got to bat first, big head".

And then, when Murali Vijay was batting for India in the second innings on Day 4, the Australian captain, who was keeping wickets, was heard on the stump-mic saying: "Murali, I know he's your captain. But you can't seriously like him as a bloke".
