MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli have often been spotted slamming their teammates on the field.
Rohit Sharma was furious at teammate Cheteshwar Pujara during the ongoing Test against South Africa. Here are times when other Indian cricketers slammed their teammates recently.

On day four of the first Test between India and South Africa in Visakhapatnam, Rohit Sharma was heard abusing fellow batsman, Cheteshwar Pujara. The incident happened when Sharma wanted to take a quick single but Pujara did not comply. Sharma was heard saying, "Puji bhaag bh****od". Here are other times things got heated between Indian cricket teammates.

Virat Kohli
During the World Cup in England, the Indian captain abused his team for a misfield in their match against Bangladesh. A ball that was thrown directly at the stumps was not backed up by a number of fielders. Mohammed Shami and Yuzvendra Chahal were the culprits who failed to stop an overthrow. Virat Kohli was seen and heard abusing them, "Beh*****d so raha hai waha pe." The skipper is often seen angry and animated marshalling his team when they get sloppy or slow.

MS Dhoni
In January this year, the former Indian captain in the second ODI against Australia abused teammate Khaleel Ahmed during a drinks break. MS Dhoni was heard saying, "Khaleel ch**iya" as the player walked on the pitch with his spikes. Known for his cool attitude it was a rare incident where one could see Dhoni get angry.

Ishant Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja
The Indian bowler in December last year got into an ugly spat with teammate Ravindra Jadeja during the Perth Test against Australia. Ishant Sharma was seen arguing and pointing fingers with the all-rounder. The duo had to be separated by teammates. The exact cause of the argument is not known but there was a lot of foul language reported exchanged between the two.
