In the ongoing third and final game of the ODI series between India and Australia at the MA Chidambaram stadium in Chennai, the visitors have set a target of 270 for the hosts. The game is evenly poised as both the teams seem to have a chance of winning the game on a slow and turning track at the Chepauk.
In the run-chase, the Indian team could not hold a comfortable position, despite getting a good start. Indian openers Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill stitched an opening partnership of 65 runs before the former was dismissed for 30 of 17 in the 10th over of the game. Gill also failed to do much as he has adjudged LBW three overs later off leg-spinner Adam Zampa.

Virat Kohli and KL Rahul were fresh batters at the crease and looked to steady the ship after the Indain team lost a couple of wickets in quick succession before an unwanted moment came up on the field. In an awkward turn of events, Kohli and Marcus Stoinis got involved in a shoulder bump after the third ball of the 21st over.
KL Rahul played a dotball as Marcus Stoinis headed toward his run-up. Kohli, who was walking towards the striker’s end to have a chat with the batter, found the Australia all-rounder in his way, leading to a tussle between the two.

The 34-year-old batter did not seem to be amused with the incident, as his expression seemed to be warm. Stoinis, on the other hand, did not pay much attention to what happened and continued towards his bowling mark with a smile on his face.
Here is the video of the incident:
