During the drinks break in the first session of the Day 4, Indian paceman Ishant Sharma was seen having a heated argument with 12th man in the match Ravindra Jadeja.

Channel 7 showed the verbal fight between the two right in the middle of the ground. At one stage, the two senior Indian cricketers were arguing nose to nose.

Ricky Ponting, who was on commentary at the time of incident, could be heard saying, "Who knows what they're talking about, it does seem very animated, there's lots of finger pointing. Things have obviously got a little bit heated between these two".

The reason for the heated exchange between the two cricketers is still not clear. In the video, it can be clearly seen that Jadeja and Ishant are pointing fingers at each other animatedly. The argument was taking an ugly turn when Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammed Shami intervened to solve the matter.

Meanhwile, according to ESPNcricinfo, a team spokesman has played down the incident.

"The Indian team management clarifies that the incident between Ishant Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja was in no way a 'fight' and happened at the spur of the moment on the field. The management confirms that all is well between them," the spokesman said.
