Ishant gets into a heated argument with Prasad, who has been equally destructive with the new ball in hand.
R Ashwin tries to calm Ishant down as he gets involved in a spat with a Sri Lankan fielder during the SSC Test.
The umpires tried to douse the fire very quickly and had a chat with Ishant soon after.
But Ishant, backed by an equally aggressive captain in Virat Kohli, was back in his elements with the ball in hand as Sri Lanka chased a record 386
Ishant picked two wickets to go with his five in the first innings as the hosts went to stumps on Day 4 at 67/3.
