India vs England: Kohli and Stokes were involved in a bit of an episode, which looked to be getting out of hands before the exchange was broken off by the on-field umpires.
Virat Kohli and Ben Stokes are two of the most enigmatic modern-day cricketers, and everytime two high-octane cricketers are up against other, ruffling of some feathers is guaranteed. During Day 1 of the fourth Test match between India and England, Kohli and Stokes were involved in a bit of an episode, which looked to be getting out of hands before the exchange was broken off by the on-field umpires.
Here's how it panned out. After Mohammed Siraj bowled a bouncer to Stokes to finish the 13th over, Stokes mouthed a few words at the India quick.
Although Siraj did not say much in return, Kohli decided to take matter into his hands and got up to Stokes' face when he and Jonny Bairstow were talking in between overs. The discussion went on between Stokes and Kohli, but just when it looked like matters may escalate, umpires Nitin Menon and Virender Sharma intervened and separated the two.

Dananjaya to Pollard: 6 6 6 6 6 6


• Pollard becomes the second player after Yuvraj to hit 6s in an over in T20
• The West Indies won the match by four wickets with 41 balls in hand, finishing with 134-6.
• Dananjaya had just picked up a hat-trick.
Kieron Pollard turned the tables for West Indies in their T20 match against Sri Lanka. Akila Dananjaya had just picked up a hat-trick and things looked a bit difficult for the hosts. But Pollard was in no mood to let a hat-trick affect his mind. The West Indies captain slammed six sixes in an over off Dhanajaya to become only the second player after Yuvraj Singh to achieve the feat in T20 cricket.
Pollard was batting on 2 off 4 and had just watched Simmons dismissed leg-before by Wanindu Hasaranga when Dananjaya came on to bowl his third over. And what an over that turned out to be! The first six went high over long-on, the second one straight into the sight screen, the third over long-off, while the fourth six was sent to the mid-wicket region, well over the fence. The fifth one went over the long on region and Pollard was gearing up for a monumental achievement.
"A couple of things went through my mind before the sixth ball - before the last ball, I thought should I go for the six or take the 30 runs in the over, he went around the wicket and bowled it onto my pads, I told myself 'Wait Polly, take a chance'. That's how I have played my cricket all along, especially against the spinners," Pollard would reveal about what went through his mind before the final delivery.
