#4 You can't seriously like him as a bloke, Tim Paine asks Murali Vijay - Perth
Virat Kohli and Tim Paine had a few run-ins with each other during the first two Tests of the series. In fact, Kohli came extremely close to "bumping" into Paine while he was taking a single.
This led to the Australian captain trying to get under the skin of Indian opening batsman Murali Vijay. During the second Test in Perth, after Kohli's dismissal when India were struggling at 48-3, Paine was heard asking Vijay, “Murali, I know he’s your captain but you can’t seriously like him? You can’t seriously like the bloke.”
Vijay was dismissed shortly after that and wasn't able to get India back into the game.Published 07 Jan 2019, 13:12 IST
