India vs England: When James Anderson called Virat Kohli a 'f**king prick' and got an earful in return


The
India
captain
didn’t
just
stop
there,
he
was
even
heard
on
the
stump
mic
saying,
“Chirp,
chirp,
and
chirp.
This
is
what
old
age
makes
you.”

The
verbal
spat
between
Kohli
and
Anderson
when
the
former
was
batting
in
the
second
innings
garnered
a
lot
of
attention
when
many
even
slammed
the
Indian
cricketer
for
not
showing
respect
to
the
veteran
England
quick.

However,
another
side
of
the
story
has
now
resurfaced
and
the
entire
picture
has
cleared
as
to
what
forced
Kohli
to
utter
those
words
and
take
a
dig
at
the
39-year-old
senior
pacer.

A
video
is
now
going
viral
over
social
media
in
which
the
stump
mic
caught
Anderson
using
the
‘F’ word
for
Kohli,
hence
the
response
from
the
latter.

It
was
revealed
that
while
Kohli
was
making
his
way
back
into
the
crease
at
the
non-striker’s
end,
he
heard
Anderson
say,
“You
f**king
prick”.

Kohli
first
complaint
to
the
umpire
but
then
decided
to
take
it
upon
himself
and
give
the
English
pacer
an
earful
on
his
own.
“You
calling
me
‘f**king
pr*ck’
for
running?
Huh?
This
ain’t
your
f**king
backyard,”
Kohli
said
to
Anderson,
who
is
often
seen
grumpy
on
the
field
when
things
aren’t
going
his
way.

The
previous
evening,
Anderson
was
peppered
with
a
flurry
of
bouncers
from
India
pacer
Jasprit
Bumrah
and
it
infuriated
the
Englishman
so
much
that
he
went
on
using
a
few
expletives
at
the
right-arm
pacer
after
getting
dismissed
in
the
dying
moments
of
day
three.

Meanwhile,
after
Kohli’s
war
of
words
with
Anderson
senior
England
cricketer,
Stuart
Broad
slammed
the
Indian
captain
for
using
such
words
for
a
legend
of
the
game.

“The
Lord’s
honours
board
suggests
it’s
as
close
to
Jimmy’s
backyard
as
Jimmy’s
actual
backyard.
Love
the
fire
but
that
language
will
have
him
in
trouble,” Broad
tweeted
while
defending
his
teammate.

India,
meanwhile,
went
on
winning
the
match
by
a
margin
of
151
runs
and
taking
1-0
lead
in
the
five-match
series.
Chasing
a
target
of
272
on
the
final
day
of
the
match,
England
were
bundled
out
for
120
in
the
fourth
innings.
Jimmy
Anderson
was
the
last
English
wicket
to
fell
as
he
was
clean
bowled
by
Mohammed
Siraj.
