England batsman Jonny Bairstow and Indian batters Shubman Gill, Sarfaraz Khan, wicketkeeper Dhruv Jurel were involved in a heated argument on Day three of the fifth Test match at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamsala.

Though the series was played in a very good spirit, this was the first instance of India and England cricketers getting involved in a serious sledging episode.

It got a little heated up when Bairstow sledged Gill and got an epic reply back. A video of the incident has gone viral over various social media platforms in which one can hear these two cricketers having a go at each other. 

Here is the conversation…

Jonny Bairstow: “What did you say to Jimmy (Anderson) about retiring or getting dropped and he got you out after that?”

Shubman Gill: “So what, it was after my 100. He can get me out after a 100. How many (runs) have you got here?”

Jonny Bairstow: “How many you scored when the ball swung?”

Dhruv Jurel: “Jonny bhai easy!”

Sarfaraz Khan: “Thode se runs kya bana diya, jyada uchal raha hain (scored a few runs today and jumping too much).”
