The Big Bash League is a war zone as the players battle it out to clinch the prestigious trophy, but all the action is not only on the field. Legendary batsman and wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist exposes the action that the viewers miss out on in the commentary box. The former skipper posted a video on Twitter which features two Koala bears fighting on the street, comparing them to his former teammates, Ricky Ponting and Mark Waugh.

"Punter and @juniorwaugh349 sorting out who gets the last sweat vest for commentary @bowlologist @tensporttv #BBL07," wrote the former captain.

The trio of Gilchrist, Ponting and Waugh who are commentators for the BBL are often seen exchanging light moments with each other from time to time. 

The adorable video of the two Koalas wrestling in the middle of a street not only interrupted traffic in South Australia but also became the butt of jokes as it was shared almost 200,000 times on Facebook.

As the two cuddly Koalas sweat it out on the road, we can only hope that both the players don't have to sweat it out like that in the commentary box. 

As compared to the video, the real heated moments are going to be present on the Boxing day Test match in Melbourne with the Englishmen's pride at stake after suffering a series defeat 3-0 to the hosts as they regained the urn.
