Virat Kohli wears his heart on his sleeve and that is very much visible when ever the Indian captain takes the field. Kohli jumped in support of Mohammed Siraj after England all-rounder Ben Stokes exchanged few words with the pacer during the opening session of day one of the fourth Test at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The incident took place at the 13th over. Interestingly, Stokes had a word with Siraj who was in his follow-through.
