Indian skipper Virat Kohli and Joss Buttler were involved in a verbal fight as the latter departed after a scintillating knock in the final T20I of the five-match series between India and England. Indian skipper Virat Kohli lost the toss once again and was invited to bat first by Eoiu Morgan.
However, the skipper led from the front as he took a brilliant decision of opening the batting alongside vice-captain Rohit Sharma. Both, Rohit and Virat got India off to a flying start as the Men in Blue cruised to 60 runs in the first powerplay for the loss of no wickets in the first powerplay.

Virat and Hardik Pandya carried the Indian innings forward as they batted together until the end to take India to a scintillating total of 224 runs for the loss of 2 wickets in their 20 overs.
Jos Buttler and Dawid Malan brought the counter-attack back from the English side as both the batsmen scored scintillating half-centuries to put team India in a state of worry. However, Jos Buttler was dismissed in the 13th over of the game as he was caught by Hardik Pandya off Bhuvneshwar Kumar on the long-off boundary. As Buttler walked back to the dugout, Indian skipper Virat Kohli made sure he was treated by Virat in a fine manner as both the players were involved in a verbal battle.
