Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow were in the middle and were under immense pressure which gave birth to an exchange of words from Siraj and Stokes, to which Kohli also joined.

Stokes who was standing at first slip, appeared to have said something to Pant. The India wicket-keeper was not the one to stand back.

Stokes also added a little quip about the Test Team of the Decade cap being a bit too similar to the ‘Baggy Green’ worn by England’s biggest rivals, Australia.

Star England all-rounder Ben Stokes has revealed that his ailing father, for whom he took a break from cricket, encouraged him to return to action in the IPL by telling him that he was duty-bound "to do the job".

Fast bowler Ollie Robinson replaced Ben Stokes as England on Wednesday named a 14-member squad for the second Test against Pakistan, starting Thursday at The Ageas Bowl.

England's Ben Stokes has insisted he would trade all the personal success he has enjoyed in 2019 if it meant his father was no longer in hospital.
