Virat Kohli (left) and Ben Stokes involved in a heated argument in Ahmedabad on Thursday.

Things heated up between Indian captain Virat Kohli and England's Ben Stokes early on Day 1 of the fourth and final Test of the series at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, as the duo was seen engaging in a heated argument.

It seemed that Kohli was upset with something which was said by Stokes to pacer Mohammed Siraj, and the Indian captain approached the English all-rounder to express his concern. 

Following the stumps on the day, Siraj cleared the air on the situation saying the burly Englishman said nasty things to him and was given a fitting reply by skipper Kohli.

"He was swearing at me, so Virat intervened and handled that well," Siraj said.

You can watch the video of the heated argument below: 

"Wicket is a batting wicket. The plan was to have patience. And wait for the ball that might come in. Virat was saying since we have only two quicks, the rotation was important. After bowling two overs, Virat said in the morning to replace Ishant at the other end. I was getting more movement there," said Siraj on his bowling performance.
