    Things heated up in the middle on Day four of the Adelaide Test with tempers boiling over on both sides. David Warner indulged in war of words with Varun Aaron and Shikhar Dhawan after being bowled off a no-ball by the former. The Australia opener also had a face-off with touring stand-in skipper Virat Kohli. Later in the day Kohli also had a verbal duel with Steve Smith. The umpires had to play peacemaker on all the occasions but Warner insisted after the end of the day’s play that there was no animosity between the two sides.
