Indian captain Virat Kohli and Ben Stokes were seen engaging in a heated argument, and the umpires had to intervene to put them apart.

Things went fiery 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 -- possibly to Siraj after he bowled the bouncer -- and the Indian captain approached the English all-rounder to express his concern. 

An argument ensued between the two, and it was only when the umpires intervened between the two, that the two split.

Watch:

Earlier in the third Test, Kohli had engaged in a hilarious banter with Stokes as well, when the England player stopped mid-way through his batting stride due to disturbance in the sight screen.

India made a bright start to the fourth Test against England, as the side dismissed three of England's wickets in the first hour of the day. Axar Patel took the first two wickets -- removing both the openers, while Mohammed Siraj dismissed England captain Joe Root.

India is leading the four-Test series 2-1 and only need a draw to secure a place in the final of the World Test Championship. England, however, are already knocked out of the tournament. 

The titular clash of the WTC will take place between June 18-22 at Lord's. New Zealand have already qualified for the final.
