Virat Kohli and veteran pacer James Anderson were involved in a heated argument on the fourth day of the second Test match at Lord’s. The incident occurred in the 17th over. After Anderson bowled the fourth ball of his over, Virat said: “You swearing at me again are you? This isn’t your fu****g backyard,” as Anderson mouthed a few words himself after delivering the ball. As Anderson returned after delivering the fifth ball, the India captain continued: “chirp chirp chirp. This is what old age makes you.”
Reacting to Virat Kohli’s words, Stuart Broad took to Twitter and wrote: “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,” read Broad’s tweet.
Earlier, Broad was ruled out of the series after enduring a grade three calf tear. Saqib Mahmood was selected in his place for the remaining matches.
