India skipper Virat Kohli and England pacer James Anderson were having a bit of go at each other even as India struggled to survive on day four of the second Test match at Lord’s. Both the cricketers are Alphas in their unique styles; Anderson was peppered with some short bowling yesterday when he was batting, now he  got the ball and was is no mood to leave Indians alone. Meanwhile, Kohli was also in the mood as the stage was set for a Kohli special with India losing both the openers. However, that opportunity went begging as he was dismissed later on.

“You swearing at me again are you? This isn’t your fu**ing backyard,” Kohli said to Anderson even as the latter came up with a few words in between. After the fifth delivery was bowled, the India captain continued to have a go at Anderson saying, “chirp chirp chirp. This is what old age makes you.”

The incident happened in the 17th over of the day when Anderson was bowling. Kohli had asked the umpire to take a look at the pacer as he alleged that he was running into the pitch; this started the war of words which intensified and only stopped when Anderson’s spell ended.
