Virat Kohli, Jonny Bairstow Fight in ENG vs IND: Former India captain Virat Kohli is one such cricketer who does not shy away when it comes to showing all his emotions on the cricketing field. Even after stepping down as the India skipper across the three formats of the game, there has not been a lot of change in his aggressive behaviour. India is currently locking horns with England in the fifth and final rescheduled Test match at the Edgbaston in Birmingham for the five-match Test series where the visitors have a lead of 2-1.
After posting a massive score 416 runs in the first innings, India bowled remarkably well to put England under pressure at 83 for 5. However, then came a big moment in the game where Virat Kohli was seen having heated argument with England batsman Jonny Bairstow during the 32nd over. Bairstow was clearly unhappy with the conversation and even signalled Virat to keep on doing the taunting work. Eventually, the on-field umpire had to intervene and he even had a long discussion with the former Indian captain.
“Shut up. Just stand and bat,” Virat Kohli can be heard on the stump mic.
But both Bairstow and Ben Stokes were seen smiling around while talking to Kohli. Things changed massively for Jonny Bairstow as a batsman after that argument as he went all guns blazing against the Indian bowlers. The right-hander suddenly changed gears and started striking over 200.

Even after being place in a troublesome situation at 98 for 5, India went on to post a mammoth total of 416 runs courtesy brilliant centuries each from Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja. For England, James Anderson picked up an impressive five-wicket haul.
Indian captain Jasprit Bumrah led his team from the front taking three early wickets to put the hosts under pressure. However, Bairstow have helped England stage a fine fightback to make a comeback in this Test match. England are currently placed at a score of 200 for 6 with Bairstow unbeaten at 91 runs off 113 balls.
