IPL 2021: Ashwin gave a befitting reply to Morgan, said – stop teaching moral lessons

Inside Story of Ashwin and Morgan’s Controversy: Delhi Capitals’ veteran off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has broken his silence over the altercation with Eoin Morgan and Tim Southee during the match against Kolkata Knight Riders. Ashwin has asked Eoin Morgan and Tim Southee not to use derogatory words and refrain from teaching them moral lessons.

Know what was the matter

During the match played between Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders on Tuesday, Rahul Tripathi’s throw from the deep collided with another batsman Rishabh Pant, on which Ashwin tried to take an extra run. There was also a debate between Morgan and Ashwin on this. Morgan had accused Ashwin of not following the spirit of the game, while under the MCC rules it is not illegal to take a run after the ball has hit the batsman’s body. After this, fast bowler Tim Southee said on Ashwin’s dismissal, “This is what happens when you are dishonest.”

Ashwin replied

Ashwin clearly said in a series of tweets that if the ball hits the batsman again, then he will take runs again. He said, “I saw the fielder’s throw and wanted to run. At that time I did not see that the ball hit Rishabh Pant. Even if I had seen it, I would have run because it is permissible in the rules. According to Morgan I did not follow the rules But it is wrong.”

He continued, “I didn’t fight but defend myself. That’s what my teachers and parents taught me and teach your kids to stand up for themselves. Morgan and Southee make their own rules about what’s right and What wrong. They have no right to teach moral lessons to others and use derogatory words.”

Ashwin further said, “I am more surprised by the fact that people are debating on this and trying to express who is good and who is bad. All I think is that give your all on the field. Play within two more rules. Then shake hands when the game is over and that’s the spirit of the game I understand.”

Let us tell you that in the 2019 World Cup final too, when the ball hit Ben Stokes’s bat, England got four runs which were termed as overthrow by the umpires and England won the match.
