In the 41st match of IPL 2021 played between Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Capitals on Tuesday, there was an altercation between KKR captain Eoin Morgan and Delhi Capitals senior spinner R Ashwin. The matter had increased to such an extent that to solve it, Kolkata wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik had to jump in the middle. This incident is from the time when captain Rishabh Pant and Ashwin were batting during Delhi’s innings. Australia great spinner Shane Warne has given his opinion on this whole matter and has called Ashwin’s behavior shameful.
He tweeted and wrote, ‘The world should not be divided on Ashwin and this issue. It is clear that this was shameful and should not have happened. Why does Ashwin need to become such a person again? I think it was perfectly okay for Eoin Morgan to lash out at him.
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

Let us tell you that during the Delhi innings, when Kolkata fielder Rahul Tripathi’s throw hit Pant, the ball hit him and went away. When this happened, Ashwin wanted to take runs. Here Morgan felt that this game was not right according to the spirit and when Ashwin was out, the Kolkata captain told the same thing to Ashwin, which escalated the matter. An angry Ashwin, who was leaving the field, then stopped and was seen coming towards Morgan. Karthik then came between the two and urged his Tamil Nadu teammate to leave the field. This video had made a lot of headlines on social media.
