Ever since letting go of the captaincy duties, Dhoni has continued to remain a strong support unit for Virat Kohli and the team behind the stumps.

In the video shared by the BCCI, it is seen that the timely move of Kohli, who was batting with Kedar Jadhav, trying to steal a single when Wade took his eyes off the incoming ball off Stoinis, Next to that, Marcus Stoinis and Kohli were seen having a conversation before Wade chirped something.

It sparked Stoinis to confront Kohli at the end of the over and an angry response from Wade, who fumed at the batsman during the change of ends.

As far as Playing XI is concerned, the hosts are going with the same squad that won the opening match by 26 runs via Duckworth-Lewis method at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Sunday. The incident continued after Wade got out in the second innings and Kohli gave him a warm send-off, we could say.

"To keep them to 250-odd on a really good batting wicket and batting conditions in the afternoon I thought was a great job", Cummins said.

Later during Australia's chase of 253, when Wade became Kuldeep Yadav's first victim during his hat-trick over Kohli's excitement knew no bounds.

But not every Australian was in Wade's corner, with former test fast bowler Stuart Clark saying the stoush was a distraction. Is this the biggest issue this team has got? They have been warned many times by former players but it seems like the war of words is never-ending. And the concern continues as MPCA curator said that the pitch in Indore is likely to favour India's new spin twin.

The incident overshadowed the fact Kuldeep Yadav became the third India bowler to take a one-day worldwide hat-trick as Australia were bowled out for 202 in a 50-run loss at Eden Gardens.

On a 10-match overseas losing streak, the Steve Smith-led side will have their task cut out and face a must-win situation to have a chance at the trophy.
