R Ashwin comes up with befitting reply to Gautam Gambhir Spirit of Cricket tweet on David Warner double-bounce six – Latest Cricket News

Australia defeated Pakistan by five wickets in a thrilling match of the second semi-final of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. However, more than Australia’s victory in the cricket world, a six by batsman David Warner is being discussed. Now different opinions are coming out in the cricket community on this six of Warner. While many cricketers including former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir are calling it against the spirit of cricket, while some cricketers including star spinner Ravichandran Ashwin have given a befitting reply. While praising this shot of Warner, Ashwin has called it a great shot.

Actually, Mohammad Hafeez, who came to bowl the eighth over of Australia’s innings, bowled the first ball but he could not release it properly and the ball reached Warner after taking two steps. Warner also chased the ball and going towards the leg-side, hit a strong six on it. The umpire also called it a no ball, due to which seven runs were added to Australia’s account without any ball. Warner played an innings of 49 runs. Gambhir has called this shot of Warner against the spirit of the game.

Sharing the screenshot of this shot of Warner, Gambhir tweeted, ‘What a poor display of sportsmanship by Warner! Shameful, what does Ravichandran Ashwin say?’. On this tweet of Gambhir, Australian journalist Peter Lalor wrote, ‘Gautam raised the wrong issue.’ However, after this Ashwin replied to him and wrote, ‘He (Gambhir’s) has to say that if this is true then he was also right. If he was wrong then he is also wrong. Fair assessment’ He praised Warner’s six in another tweet, saying, ‘Really, it was a great hit by David Warner. Brilliant shot.

Earlier, Gambhir questioned former Australian cricketer Shane Warne about the spirit of the game, what would he say on this issue. In fact, during the Indian Premier League (IPL), R Ashwin dismissed Jos Buttler from Mankading, after which many questions were raised about his sportsmanship and Warne also called Ashwin’s action wrong. Gambhir said on Star Sports, ‘Shane Warne tweets on every issue, Ricky Ponting talks big about the spirit of the game, what will he say about this. There are huge comments when Ashwin gets Mankad out, so what would Shane Warner want to say for David Warner today. Because it is very easy to speak for others, but very difficult to speak for our players.
