Bengaluru Test: When Ishant mocked Smith, Renshaw
Bengaluru [India], Mar. 5 (ANI): Ishant Sharma might be a 28-year-old right-arm fast-medium bowler and married, but it turns out, he's a child at heart.
Ishant, who was in his elements on Day 2 of the second Test between India and Australia being played at the M. Chinaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, entertained everyone with his acting skills.
The Indian pacer, during his spell in the morning session, mocked Australian captain Steve Smith by making funny faces, who in return did the same.
The 28-year-old also tried to tease Matt Renshaw, who too, like his skipper, retaliated by making faces.

This exchange of expressions continued for a while and was even backed by Indian skipper Virat Kohli. He was later seen having a chat with his Australian counterpart, perhaps discussing the same incident.
The hosts were earlier bowled out for a paltry 189 on Day 1 of the match with off-spinner Nathan Lyon taking eight wickets. (ANI)
