    Ishant Sharma and the Sri Lankan team

    During the fourth day of the third and final Test match between India and Sri Lanka, Ishant Sharma taunted pacer Dhammika Prasad while taking a single after the latter exhausted his quota of bouncers in the over. Ishant began tapping his head to signal Prasad to take aim there. This followed by a war-of-words between the two. Things did not end there as Lanka's Dinesh Chandimal nudged Ishant while passing him during the spat. This infuriated R Ashwin and later on, Lahiru Thirimanne too, joined the clash. The unpires then advised Angelo Mathews to calm his players down.
