Things exploded between India captain Virat Kohli and veteran England player James Anderson during the first session of day 4 of the second test at Lords.

Kohli seemed to be angry about something Anderson had told him. "You swearing at me again are you? This isn’t your fu***ng backyard," Kohli could be heard saying over the stump mic to Anderson's during the 17th over of the day.

Chirp chirp chirp. This is what old age makes you do," Kohli could be heard saying after Anderson bowled the fifth delivery of the over. Kohli was looking good during his short stay at the crease before Sam Curran dismissed him for 20. Kohli edged one straight to Jos Buttler

India finally finished the session at 56/3 with a lead of just 29 times. India earlier lost its first wicket KL Rahul, who scored a century in the first innings, and Rohit Sharma in the first 12 overs of the day. In reacting to the incident, Stuart Broad, who was ruled from the ongoing test series, reminded fans of the Anderson five wicket hauls at Lords, saying that the honours board at the venue's suggests it his "actual backyard".

"The Lord's honours board suggests it's as close to Jimmy's backyard as Jimmy's actual backyard. Love the fire but that language will have him in trouble," Broad tweeted.
