“Look, I don’t believe it’s a personal or one-on-one war, and I wouldn’t characterize it as such. People seeking attention may interpret it that way, but I don’t see it that way at all “After last night’s game against CSK, Ashwin stated.
“…I wasn’t the one who noticed Rishabh had been hit (Pant).
So I simply got the impression that they’d already chosen to give it a shot. Which is one of the reasons why I stated the words used weren’t in the appropriate direction or in the correct place.” He went on to clarify.
He was referring to his Twitter remarks following the game.
In which he implored Morgan and Tim Southee to refrain from using “derogatory” language and lectured him on the “Spirit of Cricket” by assuming the moral high ground.
After Ashwin was dismissed in that match, fast bowler Southee reportedly chastised the senior Indian cricketer, stating.
“That’s what happens when you cheat.”
After seeing Ashwin racing towards Morgan and Southee, Dinesh Karthik stepped in to put out the flames.
“I think we need to recognize that everyone is different culturally right now,” Ashwin said.
“The way people are educated to play cricket in England and in India, the way people think is absolutely different.”
“I don’t think there’s anyone here who’s doing something bad.
It’s only that the way the game was played in the 1940s cannot be the same way you want it to be played now ” he stated
