The high voltage Test series which is right now on the balance with the score line being 1-1 will have its last chapter starting from 25th March at Dharmasala.

Asked about his take on the spirit of the game, Smith said: "There's always a bit of tension when you're playing India in Test matches. As far I'm concerned it's being played in the right spirit on the field and it's a hard and tough grind. That's how I would explain it and no issues with that."

"I think he probably did a pretty terrific job to be able to get Virat back on the field after that shoulder injury. He's a terrific physio and he obviously does a great job for them," said

However, Smith on his part pleaded not guilty. "It was a bit disappointing. I didn't actually do anything. Virat was having a go at me saying I was disrespecting Patrick Farhart. I was probably the exact opposite.

"They (four-five of them) started taking Patrick's name. I don't know why. He's our physio. His job is to treat me. I don't find the reason behind it. I could not understand. You must ask why they have started taking his name," said Kohli at post match press conference.

After Australia salvaged a draw in the Ranchi Test, yet another controversy has revealed itself. This time Indian skipper Virat Kohli has directly charged his counterpart Steve Smith of disrespecting Team India physio.
The India vs Australia series so far has been nothing far from a nail biting one. Amidst controversies and verbal duels this series has got even the media from both the countries up on their feet.
