Animated exchange between Bairstow and Kohli fires up the former

During the 32nd over of England's first innings, Jonny Bairstow was struggling to get his timing right. In his 60-ball stay by then, the man who's been in sublime form in 2022 has managed just 13 runs. Virat Kohli, who had a friendly conversation with Bairstow while the players dispersed from the field yesterday, sledged him occasionally from the slip cordon. Bairstow did not like that and had a fiesty exhange with the former Indian captain. However, after the on-field umpires' intervention, Kohli was seen having a laugh about the incident with Bairstow.
