Tim Paine plays down Virat Kohli spat, 'loves' India skipper's attitude

  • With the Ishant Jadeja spat in focus the broadcasters seem to have gone a bit too far in trying to bring the audience too close to the action in the middle

Paine's sledge to batsman Murali Vijay later in the match summed up Australia's dislike for Kohli.

Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting believes it's advantage Australia in the ongoing four-Test series after the hosts' dominant win in the recently-concluded second Test in Perth. Virat Kohli was seen running into Tim Paine when the latter was taking a single. To me, that is disrespectful.

"Kohli gets away with more than most cricketers simply because he is Virat Kohli and he gets placed on a pedestal but this Test left the Indian captain looking silly", Johnson observed.

Although Kohli's actions earned him a lot of flak from the Australians, Indian fans backed him saying that such spats were necessary to push the opposition on the back foot.

Kohli and Australia captain Tim Paine engaged in a heated battle throughout the Test at Perth Stadium, with the pair told to cool it by the umpires at one stage.

"It's definitely nothing compared to 2014 to be honest", Kohli said. "In the first innings he scored a brilliant hundred and walked off to a standing ovation but he failed to acknowledge the crowd because he felt hard done by after Peter Handscomb's catch. I am really proud of the way we stuck at it, I think the game tightened up at certain stages and then we stuck to our guns and delivered our skills really well under pressure at times and were managing to keep eking ahead in the game, against a team that's as good as India that's really pleasing for our side".

The cauliflower was sold to wholesalers in IL and other states, however the lettuces were not distributed to wholesalers in IL . The red and green leaf lettuce was distributed in California, Colorado, Oregon, Texas, Pennsylvania, Washington and Canada.

Johnson and Kohli have history.

"He is the No.1 batsman in the world at the moment and what he does for his team is great but I'm not sure this is how your captain should behave". "He can prove me wrong and I will be very happy to be proven wrong as long as the Indian team benefits".

Rahul has not managed a fifty in his last seven Test outings and equally worrying has been the manner of his dismissals, with the right hander either bowled or trapped LBW in 11 of his last 14 innings.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India said: "It is "assumed" that Kohli said, "I am the best player in the world and you are just a stand-in captain".

"I apologised immediately because that obviously was not my intention but it sparked a heated debate", Johnson said. "Play the game. You guys are the captains", Chris said to which Paine was fiery in asking him that they are allowed to have a conversation.

"Because I think that would be great for Australia-India relations".
