The incident happened in the 23rd over of India's innings, when Sharma pushed a James Faulkner delivery to mid-off and Warner threw the ball towards the striker's end but the ball went through Sharma's legs and wicket-keeper Brad Haddin missed it as India stole a single.

Warner and Sharma were then engaged in a verbal spat for a brief time after the opener ran for an overthrow. In the end, it took the umpires a fair few minutes to separate the two of them.

The four-match Test series, which preceded the tri-series, was also marred by incidents of altercation between Indian and Australian players, including Virat Kohli, Warner and Mitchell Johnson.
