Former India opener Virender Sehwag has taken a hilarious dig at England star Eoin Morgan for his altercation with Ravichandran Ashwin throughout an IPL conflict between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Delhi Capitals (DC) on the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Tuesday, September 28.
Whereas Delhi Capitals (DC) skipper Rishabh Pant opted to downplay the verbal spat between the 2 gamers, Australian legend Shane Warne criticized Ashwin for his ‘disgraceful’ act on the field.
Within the meantime, Sehwag has schooled KKR captain Morgan for partaking in heated argument with Ashwin. Recalling how England acquired 4 additional runs resulting from an overthrow which hit Ben Stokes’ bat at a vital second within the ICC World Cup 2019 closing towards New Zealand, Sehwag stated: “On July 14, 2019 when it ricocheted of Ben Stokes’ bat within the closing over, Mr. Morgan sat on a dharna exterior Lord’s and refused to carry the World Cup trophy and New Zealand received. Haina? Bade aaye, ‘Doesn’t recognize’ waale.”

Notably, Morgan and Ashwin had been concerned in a heated alternate after KKR pacer Tim Southee dismissed the DC tailender within the final over of the primary innings.
The KKR camp appeared upset with Pant and Ashwin after they went for an additional run off the final ball of the penultimate over after the ball ricocheted off the DC skipper’s bat.
After the match, KKR wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik backed his captain’s gesture at that second.
“I do know that Rahul Tripathi threw the ball and it hit Rishabh Pant after which it ricocheted off that and Ashwin began to run. I don’t suppose Morgan appreciates that, he’s somebody when the ball hits the batter, he expects them to not run due to the spirit of cricket,” Karthik had stated within the press convention.
