Watch: Virat Kohli bursts out laughing on-field as Ishant Sharma mocks Steven Smith

Standing in slip position, Virat Kohli bursts out laughing after Ishant mocked and made faces in front of Steven Smith

Indian pacer Ishant Sharma mocking Australian captain Steven Smith was one of the highlights of Day 2’s play of India vs Australia second Test match at Bengaluru. But what’s even more hilarious was Indian skipper Virat Kohli’s reaction on the ground. Virat burst out laughing after Ishant tried to mimic Steven Smith’s expressions after he plays a ball and moves away from the stumps.

In the middle of an impressive over by Ishant Sharma, Steven Smith missed the unplayable ball which made Ishant mock Australian skipper. Virat, who was standing on the first slip could not control his laughter as soon as he saw the Indian pacer’s expressions.

Soon this incident went viral on social media as it spread like wildfire. Even BCCI joined in on the fun asking Twitterati to caption the animated expression. The responses were no doubt hilarious.

Australians, who are known for their sledging got the taste of their own medicine by Indians this time. Australian batsman Steve Smith and Matt Renshaw were involved in a verbal spat with Virat and other Indian players. The banter continued for a while on the field.

The first Test also saw India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja mocking Smith on the ground. But at that instance, Smith had the last laugh as he went on to score a century and played a major part in winning the game for his team.

However, Australia finished day 2 at 237/6 and trail by 26 runs in the 1st innings. It has been a day Australian players will remember for a while.
