Indian pacer Ishant Sharma mocking Australian captain Steve Smith was everything on the day 2 of India vs Australia second Test match in Bengaluru. After an awesome delivery, Ishant shook his head with a weird "monkey face" leaving not just Virat Kohli but Steve Smith pretty amused too. With Matt Renshaw and Smith successfully staving off every attack, Ishant made a decision to unsettle Smith by making weird faces to the Australian captain.
While the duo got involved in intense banter, the incident left Indian skipper Virat Kohli in splits as he could not control his laughter after watching Ishant's impression of Smith.
Even BCCI also posted Ishant's amusing face and remarked: "Caption this". The responses were no doubt hilarious.
It was the 26th over of the Australian innings and Smith was defying Indian bowlers.
And this is not the first time Steve Smith has been at the receiving end of such on-field theatrics. Jadeja finally sent back Smith but the highlight of the day for many was Ishant's attempts to rile up the Australians.
