Right before lunch at Day 2, when Australia had just one wicket down, Smith failed to block a full delivery from Sharma and narrowly escaped with the ball just missing his off stump. Ishant tried to tease the two batsman by making faces after testing them with his pace.
Smith and Renshaw also replied back by making faces. This banter continued for a while on the field. In the video, a bemused Steve is too seen reacting to Indian bowler.
Ishant's expressions also inspired multiple memes on social media, particularly on Twitter.
India captain Virat Kohli couldn't stop smiling on seeing what was happening in the middle and was later seen having a chit chat with his Australian counterpart Smith.
The incident took place after Ravichandran Ashwin removed opener David Warner in the morning.
With India looking all but comfortable in the second Test match in the ongoing series against Australia, Indian cricket fans had only few things to cheer for.
In the first Test at Pune, which the visitors had won inside three days, India's Ravindra Jadeja had mocked Smith by impersonating him.
