David Warner and Rohit Sharma fight

You just cannot keep an India vs Australia match in mellowed manner for the tempers flared once again during the second ODI of the ongoing Carlton Mid Tri-Series when Indian opener Rohit Sharma and Australian batsman David Warner got involved in a verbal exchange at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). Sharma who went to score a fine century to bail out the Indian side seemed to have irked Warner who has earlier been involved in on-field spats during the Border-Gavaskar Test Series. One can watch the complete fight between Rohit Sharma and David Warner here on Official Website of StarSports.

The incident happened in the 23rd over of India’s innings, when Sharma pushed a James Faulkner delivery to mid-off and Warner threw the ball towards the striker’s end but the ball went through Sharma’s legs and wicket-keeper Brad Haddin missed it as India stole a single. Warner and Sharma were then engaged in a verbal spat for a brief time after the opener ran for an overthrow. In the end, it took the umpires a fair few minutes to separate the two of them. Also Watch: Virat Kohli survives Mitchell Johnson’s sledging to make splendid century!
