The verbal volleys continued between the two sets of players on the fourth day of the third Test between Australia and India at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Sunday.
After Indian bowlers got rid of the top-eight Australian batsmen, Pat Cummins (61*) and Nathan Lyon (6) kept the visitors at bay with the help of an unbeaten 43-run stand for the ninth wicket.
This is when Indian wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant tried to unsettle Lyon from behind the stumps in the final session of the day.
“C’mon Gary, you don’t want to come tomorrow (Day 5) for nothing,” Pant was caught by the stump mic saying to Lyon.
Lyon too looked at Pant and asked him what he was trying to say. After that Pant repeated the same, meanwhile, Lyon said, “I can’t even understand what you’re saying mate” followed by “I like you too Rishabh”.
Kohli then joined the banter and passed a hilarious comment, telling Pant: “Dil pe lagi baat ye (he took offence to your words)”.
