Ravichandran Ashwin Responds To Australian Journo Over David Warner & Spirit Of Cricket Debate

Ravichandran Ashwin ran out Jos Buttler during an IPL match that happened back in the year 2019, but that incident still comes up in the Spirit of Cricket debate whenever something controversial happens in the cricket world. Last night, in the second semifinal of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 played between the Pakistan cricket team and the Australian cricket team, Australia’s opener David Warner was involved in two controversial moments.

The first one was when the Pakistani all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez bowled a dead ball, but Warner came down the track and smacked it for a six. Later in the innings, Warner walked back to the dressing room after the umpire ruled him out even though the replays suggested otherwise. There was a huge debate on social media about these two incidents.

What an absolutely pathetic display of spirit of the game by Warner: Gautam Gambhir

Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir was one of the first to criticize David Warner for not showing the Spirit of Cricket when a ball slipped from Mohammad Hafeez’s hands and reached to him after bouncing twice. Instead, he reached to the ball and smashed it for a huge six. Here’s what Gautam Gambhir tweeted: “What an absolutely pathetic display of spirit of the game by Warner! #Shameful, what say Ravichandran Ashwin?”

Many fans have agreed with Gautam Gambhir as the tweet has received over 50,000 likes and 4,500 retweets so far. However, an Australian cricket writer named Peter Lalor. The Aussie cricket writer wrote: “Bad take, Gautam.”

His point is that if this is right , that was right: Ravichandran Ashwin

Ravichandran Ashwin then himself decided to give a reply to the Australian cricket writer. Here’s what the Tamil Nadu off-spinner replied to him: “His point is that if this is right , that was right. If that was wrong , this is wrong too. Fair assessment? Peter Lalor.”

Another cricket fan told Ashwin that Warner saw the ball in front of him and smashed it hard. He did nothing wrong. Ravichandran Ashwin agreed with him and here’s what he said: Absolutely it was a wonderful hit by @davidwarner31 Great shot.”
