The Lords test ending in a sensational 151 run win for India had a fair share of clashes between the teams. Hardly the Kohli v Anderson clash died down from the 4th day, we had one more on the 5th morning as Bumrah and Shami was trying to bail out India from a difficult situation. In the 92nd over of the India innings Mark Wood bowling in spite of an injured shoulder said something  apparently unpleasant to  Bumrah on his way back to his mark and the Indian apparently told him something too. 

As the over finished Bumrah was seen speaking to umpire Illingworth and pointed out towards Wood.  As Illingworth was trying to calm down Bumrah, Jos Buttler came right into Bumrah and had a heated exchange . Bumrah was heard saying, ” I was not complaining to bowl slow man “.

Umpire Illingworth indicated Shami to ask Bumrah to keep mouth shut and finally order was restored .
Bumrah showed that he was shimmering from within as he hit the next Mark Wood delivery for 4.

The brilliant 9th wicket stand between Bumrah (34*) and Shami (56*) saved India from impending defeat and brought them right back into the game from which India managed to extract a brilliant win in a major turnaround.
