"There is a lot of emotion that goes into those games from both sides and I think that's important to actually see. So in terms of bad blood, I wouldn't suggest there is any.

Gilchrist and New Zealand batsman Craig McMillan were involved in a heated exchange during the first Test in Brisbane on Sunday, which Australia won by an innings and 156 runs.

Vice-captain Gilchrist claimed a catch off McMillan but the all rounder stood his ground and was given not out. The pair briefly argued before the umpires intervened.

New Zealand coach John Bracewell echoed Sunday's comments by Australia captain Ricky Ponting, telling reporters to move on to more important topics.
