Day 4 of the third Test of Cricbuzz Cup between Sri Lanka and India, turned out be a very entertaining day for the viewers as Ishant Sharma and Dhammika Prasad got into an ugly on-field spat in the last session of the day. The clash started when Dhammika Prasad bowled three consecutive bouncers that annoyed Ishant Sharma. Having exhausted his quota of two bouncers for the over, Prasad pitched one up and Ishant cut it towards point region for a single. But as he ran past Prasad, he tapped his helmet as if to say ‘hit me’. This triggered a war of words and Dinesh Chandimal brushed past Ishant to further raise tempers. R Ashwin tried to calm down Ishant and the umpires spoke to both sets of players and the host skipper Angelo Mathews.

Things got more heated when Ishant pushed the next ball for a single and smacked his helmet repeatedly while running down the pitch and past Prasad, as if goading him to bowl more bouncers. Prasad took the invitation when Ishant next came on strike, the batsman swaying out of the line. Prasad, who had overstepped by a big margin, treated Ishant to a glare.
