Watch: Virat Kohli mocks after Australia waste up reviews

Replays showed that the ball hit Pujara's bat.

The tussle between Virat Kohli and the Australian cricket team continues to spill the beans. This time Kohli was seen mocking the Australian team after Australia wasted up their review on an appeal against Cheteshwar Pujara.

A smirking Kohli emerged on day three of the third Test to clap and cheer an unsuccessful review by the visitors.

The crucial moment call came at the end of the 58th over on Saturday and left Australia with zero reviews remaining until the 81st over.

Kohli's childlike applause for what he deemed an error by counterpart Steve Smith came three days after match referee Richie Richardson called on both skippers to ensure their teams behaved much better than in Bangalore, which hosted one of the most spiteful Tests of the modern era.

The snickometer suggested third umpire Nigel Llong might have actually made a mistake, not skipper Smith.

Llong ruled the lbw appeal, which came when India were 1-149 and Cheteshwar Pujara had 22, was rightly given not out because the ball hit the bat first.

Murali Vijay was on 58 and replays confirmed he would have been out had Smith been in a position to refer the decision.

Kohli, who is nursing a shoulder injury that prevented him fielding on day two, is expected to bat at number four for India.
