Kohli plays down 'banter' as tempers flare in Perth

Kohli plays down 'banter' as tempers flare in Perth

It all started on day three when Paine was batting and Kohli was fielding in the slips. The stump mic picked up Kohli asking Paine "why are you getting riled up', to which Paine said "I'm not".

The West Australian Cricket Association is keen to host a day-night Test at Perth Stadium next summer when Australia play New Zealand.

"Murali, I know he's your captain". It is part of the game, but nothing too serious. Vijay, who had a much bigger job at hand, turned a deaf ear to the sledge.

The two national captains have been chipping away at each other for virtually the entire game, with Kohli's demonstrative antics and overt celebrations causing some furrowed brows amongst Australian representatives, all of whom are desperate to avoid anything even remotely resembling the piss-awful antics of the home side in the recent past.

"In the past, we've talked about the captain, whether it's Allan Border or Ricky Ponting, they're the best batsmen in the world", he said. "You guys are the captains", umpire Gaffaney said as he got in between the pair. "There's no swearing. keep your cool Virat".

The stump microphones picked up Virat Kohli saying, "if he messes it up, it's 2-0", while referring to the Test series lead.

And how about this stat: Australia's batsmen from Tim Paine to Josh Hazlewood (No. 6 to No. 11) scored a 146 runs combined. They have been set 287 to win after Australia were dismissed for 243 in their second innings. Last night, however, Paine made a decision to return serve by calling him "dickhead".

While India didn't pick a full-time spinner, Lyon finished man of the match with a haul of eight wickets in the second Test. Paine lauded the spinner and also credited his pace bowling unit that came through for the second Test running.

Taylor also said that following the groundbreaking win, Australia has fully moved on from the ball-tampering scandal, with Paine a large reason why. "What I will say is that he I was really proud of the way our team conducted themselves on the field this week".

"We have day-night one-day cricket, it's just different hours to what it would be on the east coast. I'm just anxious about what we can control in the Australian dressing room and I thought as bowlers we came out today and performed pretty well".
