Even less than a month after the racism row involving Andrew Symonds and Harbhajan Singh was resolved, the Australian all rounder once again was seen mired in a heated exchange of words with an Indian bowler -- this time Ishant Sharma.
Symonds, who scored 59 to propel Australia to a challenging 317 at SCG, fired up in final overs and smashed a five fours and two sixes to rise his half century from 44 balls.
While Symonds' innings was blazing, Ishant Sharma foxed him with a slower delivery and the Australian was clean bowled. But Symonds did not leave the ground before exchanging some heated words with the Indian paceman.
Symonds first reacted to his dismissal after which Ishant Sharma retaliated by showing Symonds his way back to the pavilion, which led to the two umpires calling over the Indian team and asking them to show restraint.
Umpire Daryl Harper was seen having a word with Dhoni and his men.
Incidently, Symonds had alleged Harbhajan of calling him a monkey during a Test played at the same ground.
