The Boxing Day test between England and South Africa at Centurion has seen its fair chance of ups and downs for both sides. As the Proteas would be hoping for a turn around of events and grab a win under the newly-appointed management, on the other hand England would also be looking to not let the woes of sickness hamper their winning chance. However, as both teams seemed determined and competitive to taste victory, the fourth day witnessed a rather unconventional seen.
English all-rounder and vice-captain Ben Stokes and veteran pacer Stuart Broad were involved in a heated on-field argument during South Africa's second innings on Day 3 of the first Test match. It is still unknown as to what might have resulted in an argument but when the visitors were involved in team-huddle after the fall of a South African wicket, Broad could be seen saying something while Stokes shot back at him.
The vice-captain seemed to have lost his composure while he was saying something to Broad whereas, the speedster could be seen trying to make his point clear as the English team-mates looked on and surprisingly, no one was spotted acting as a peacemaker. In the end, the duo was seen giving a fist bump to each other. The video was also posted on social media which garnered several reactions from Twitteratis.
