During the final few minutes of the game, Virat Kohli was seen talking to his gun-bowler Jasprit Bumrah regarding the field settings.

The first T20I played between India and Australia in Vizag yesterday turned out to be a low-scoring but thrilling affair with the visitors just managing to cross the victory line on the last ball of the match. Though there were many tense moments during the finishing stages, a particular incident has caught the public eye and Twitter can't have enough of it.

During the final few minutes of the game, Virat Kohli was seen talking to his gun-bowler Jasprit Bumrah regarding the field settings. At one particular moment, Kohli's deputy Rohit Sharma is seen standing silently beside the duo while the captain talks to Bumrah and leaves. While some on Twitter have alleged this as being disrespectful towards the Mumbai Indians' captain, others don't feel so.

Have a look at the clip here and make your opinion:

With 14 required off the last over, Umesh was hit for a boundary each by Jhye Richardson and Pat Cummins, who had identical scores of 7 not out as they reached the target of 127 off the last delivery of the match.

"With the bowling effort, we were pleased. Bumrah can do wonders with the ball when it is reversing and did exceptionally well to get us in the game. And Mayank did well in the middle overs as well," said Kohli.

India's wrist spin duo of Yuzvendra Chahal (1/28 in 4 overs) and debutant Mayank Markande (0/31 in 4 overs) couldn't make much of an impact on Maxwell, who blasted both of them for towering sixes.

Rahul made an impressive half-century on his comeback but Pant was needlessly run-out during India's three-wicket defeat against Australia in the first T20 International.
