‘Love the fire but the language will have him in trouble’- Stuart Broad reacts after Virat Kohli verbal spat with James Anderson

The ongoing 2nd Test between India and England has reached at the crucial juncture where India is marching ahead at the moment with the lead of close to 270 runs with England need to bat their heart out to win Test match against India.

On the fourth day of 2nd Test an Interesting verbal battle took place between two greats of the game in both sides i.e Kohli and Andreson where the Indian skipper reminded the legendary fast bowler that this is not his backyard and he should stop swearing at him.

Indian skipper said “You swearing at me again are you? This isn’t your fu****g backyard,” as Anderson mouthed a few words himself after delivering the ball. As Anderson returned after delivering the fifth ball, the India captain continued: “chirp chirp chirp. This is what old age makes you.”

However, legendary England fast bowler Stuart Broad said that he is absolutely okay with the battle but the language Kohli used might put him in trouble and he also reminded Indian skipper that the legendary fast bowler have taken 5 wicket haul 7 times at iconic lords so considering that in mind it is his backyard.

“The Lord’s honours board suggests it’s as close to Jimmy’s backyard as Jimmy’s actual backyard. Love the fire but that language will have him in trouble,” read Broad’s tweet

He was part of the series-opener at Trent Bridge, has been ruled out of the entire series after enduring a grade three calf tear as he awkwardly landed on his right foot during the training session ahead of the second Test.

“Things can change so quickly. A moment before training all smiles then during the warm up, I jumped a hurdle, landed a bit awkwardly on my right ankle then the next step felt like I’d been whipped by a rope as hard as you can imagine on the back of my leg. I actually turned to @jimmya9 [James Anderson] & asked why he whipped me! but when I realised he was no where near me I knew I was in trouble. Scans say grade 3 calf,” Broad wrote.

“All so innocuous. Season over & gutted to miss this India Test Series but a huge focus on Australia now. Going to take my time, no rush, baby steps & be the fittest I can be heading out there. Big focus in my brain,” he added, before wishing well for his team for the long tour.

India and England are currently locking horns for the second cycle of World Test Championship for a five match series where the first match ended in a draw due to heavy rain and the second one is inching towards draw too at Lords.
