“Do something now to his ADD (attention deficit disorder) f***ing pills,” commented Symonds, who seemed to be referring to Labuschagne, who scored 91 for Australia against India at the SCG on Friday. “Yeah, f—,” responded Warne, before adding, “Jeez it’s annoying. ‘No!!!’ Just f—ing bat properly.”

Symonds continued, “We’ll have to give him the hog pile. Mate if you keep that shit up we’re going to have to squash your guts out your arse”. The incident happened when Warne and Symonds were on commentary duty for the Adelaide Strikers v Melbourne Renegades BBL game.

Steve Smith roared back to form with 131 while debutant Will Pucovski made 62 at the top of the order. In response, India started well opener Subhuman Gill registering his maiden half-century before Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara build on the foundation laid by Gill and fellow opener Rohit Sharma, who made 26.
