The second Test was also marred by a spat between Virat Kohli and Tim Paine
Seems, all is not well in the Indian camp. On the fourth day of the recently-concluded second Test against Australia in Perth, two senior players from the visiting team - Ishant Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja were seen having a heated discussion on the field.
The official broadcasters of the ongoing four-Test series Down Under did not miss the opportunity to play the clip of the animated exchanges during the fifth and final day's play at the Perth Stadium.
There is no clear explanation as to what led to the rift between Ishant and Jadeja but it seems the former was not happy with the latter's fielding position. Notably, Jadeja, who was benched after being named in the 13-man squad, was on the field as a substitute fielder.
Ishant and Jadeja can be seen pointing fingers at each other during a brief break in between overs. As the discussion gets heated up, the two come face-to-face along the wicket at the venue before being separated by teammates Mohammed Shami and Kuldeep Yadav.
Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting, while commentating for Channel 7, pointed out that things got a bit heated up between Ishant and Jadeja.
"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," Ponting said.
Ishant Sharma & Ravindra Jadeja were caught fighting & abusing on field yesterday. They were seen pointing fingers at each other in an animated argument. They were separated by Kuldeep & Shami. What's going on in Indian dressing room? #AUSvIND

Meanwhile, Australia knocked over the last five Indian batsmen for a mere 28 runs to win the second Test level the four-match series 1-1 on Tuesday.
Resuming on their overnight score of 112 for 5, India were banking on Hanuma Vihari and Rishabh Pant, their last recognised pair, to pull off a miracle on a difficult pitch at the Optus stadium on the final day.
But the Indian lower middle-order and the tail-enders were no match for the Aussie bowlers as the visitors got bowled out for 140 in just over an hour in the first session.
Vihari was the first wicket to fall on the final day when he got an inside-edge on his thigh pad off a quick delivery from Starc and the ball carried all the way to Marcus Harris at mid-wicket.
Pant followed soon as he got sent back by Nathan Lyon once again in this series for 30. Starc and Pat Cummins then finished off the tail-enders, getting rid of Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah in successive overs to trigger the celebrations in the Australian camp.
Off-spinner Lyon and fast bowler Starc finished as the pick of the bowlers with 3 wickets each while Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins got 2 each.
The win was Australia's first since the unfortunate ball-tampering scandal in the Cape Town Test in March this year and Tim Paine's first as since he succeeded Steve Smith, who is serving a one-year ban for his involvement in the unfortunate incident against South Africa.
