NEW DELHI: Ricky Ponting and Indian pacer Zaheer Khan were seen in a verbal spat after the Australia captain’s dismissal during the opening Test at PCA Stadium on Friday.
While Ponting was on his way to pavillion the incident took place where the Aussie skipper and the Indian pacer were seen in heated exchange. Umpire Billy Bowden had to intervene to cool down the players.
Meanwhile, Australia were 178/3 at tea. Shane Watson (75) and Michael Hussey (0) were at the crease.
The visitors lost their third wicket when Harbhajan Singh got rid of Australia vice-captain Michael Clarke when Rahul Dravid took a sharp catch.
