Latest Cricket News: Shane Warne, an Australian star, lambasted off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin on Wednesday for “disgraceful” behaviour during the Kolkata vs. Delhi game in the IPL 2021. In the 19th over, Ashwin tried a second run after the ball bounced off Rishabh Pant’s bat. When the off-spinner was removed in the penultimate over, pacers Tim Southee and Eoin Morgan muttered a few words to Ashwin, which irritated him.
Shane Warne, a former Australia spinner, took to Twitter on Wednesday to criticise Ashwin’s behaviour. Warne described the off-performance spinner’s as “disgraceful,” adding that “Morgan had every right to nail the Indian spinner.”
“The world should not be divided over this issue or Ashwin. It’s fairly straightforward — it’s disgraceful and should never happen. Why does Ashwin have to be that person all the time? @Eoin16 had every right to nail him, in my opinion, “Warne took to Twitter.

Ashwin had the final laugh in the game, getting the KKR skipper on duck in the second innings. Eoin Morgan, who has struggled with the bat, edged Ashwin’s delivery towards slips and was out for a 2-ball duck.
The world shouldn’t be divided on this topic and Ashwin. It’s pretty simple – it’s disgraceful & should never happen. Why does Ashwin have to be that guy again ? I think @Eoin16 had every right to nail him !!!! https://t.co/C2g5wYjeT6

I was delighted to be a peacemaker: DK
At the post-match press conference, KKR wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik stated the cause for the altercation and how Morgan did not consider Ashwin’s actions to be in the spirit of cricket.
“I know Rahul Tripathi threw the ball, which hit Rishabh Pant and then ricocheted off it, causing Ashwin to sprint. I don’t think Eoin appreciates that; he’s the type of person who, when the ball strikes the batter, expects them not to run because that’s the spirit of cricket “Karthik explained.
He went on to say that he was glad to be a mediator between the two because DK was the one who got Ashwin away from Morgan to settle things down.
Kolkata finally won the match by three wickets, thanks to Nitish Rana’s steady knock and Sunil Narine’s fast cameo towards the end.
