New Delhi: As soon as Jimmy Anderson came out to bat at No. 11 spot on Day 5 of Mumbai Test, a rather surprising scenario unfolded at the Wakhade stadium.

The cool and composed Ravichandran Ashwin was engaged in a heated 'war of words' with the England seamer following the latter's unexpected comments about Virat Kohli.

Here's what Anderson said which sparked a reaction from Ashwin, forcing the umpire and Kohli to intervene.

Here's how Anderson was invited to the pitch by the Indian off-spinner.

Anderson faced severe criticism, not just from current and former members of the Indian cricket team but also former South African captain Graeme Smith for his remarks on Kohli.
