In the 3rd ODI at Chepauk Stadium, a heated clash occurred between Virat Kohli and Marcus Stoinis. As Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya were vying for a chase in the middle, Virat accidentally bumped into Marcus Stoinis. This led to Virat giving Stoinis a death stare. Watch the video of the incident.
In the series decider against Australia, India was unable to chase the target of 270 runs. Initially, the men in blue appeared to be in a strong position with Hardik and Virat batting in the middle. However, after Virat Kohli was dismissed, the Indian batting order crumbled and collapsed disastrously.
With his outstanding spell, Australian leg spinner Adam Zampa tore through the Indian side. Zampa took crucial wickets of well-settled players such as KL Rahul, Shubhman Gill, Ravindra Jadeja, and Hardik Pandya at crucial moments of the game.
Ashton Agar provided excellent support, taking 2 wickets for 41 runs in his 10 overs. In a crucial moment of the game, Agar dismissed both Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav in back-to-back deliveries, which opened the gate for the Aussies.
The former Indian captain is infamous for his aggressive behavior on the cricket field, never shying away from getting involved in arguments. During the 2nd innings of the 3rd ODI, Virat did exactly that when Stoinis came in his way while taking a single.
At the time of the incident, Virat seemed to be in a foul mood and was visibly angry. After the incident, the two players pushed each other, but fortunately, they quickly made up. Stoinis even chuckled after the shoulder-to-shoulder push, although Virat Kohli remained visibly angry.
