T20 World Cup 2021: Pathetic display of spirit of game – Gambhir on Warner’s six off double-bounced ball

In
the
eighth
over
of
Australia’s
run
chase,
the
first
ball
from
Hafeez
slipped
out
of
his
hand
and
bounced
twice.
Warner
moved
outside
leg
and
swung
it
over
deep
mid-wicket
for
a
six.

From
the
subsequent
no
ball,
Warner
got
two
more
runs.
Thanks
to
that
six,
Australia
got
13
runs
from
that
over.
Australia
chased
down
the
177-run
target
with
five
wickets
and
one
over
to
spare.

“What
an
absolutely
pathetic
display
of
spirit
of
the
game
by
a
Warner!
#Shameful
What
say
@ashwinravi99?”
Gambhir
tweeted
trying
to
imply
that
Warner
should
have
left
the
delivery
as
its
had
slipped
out
of
Hafeez’s
hand.

However,
no
cricketing
law
calls
for
such
a
delivery
to
be
considered
dead.

Senior
India
off-spinner
Ravichandran
Ashwin,
who
was
criticised
in
the
past
for
running
out
Jos
Buttler
at
the
non-striker’s
end
after
he
backed
up
too
early
and
issuing
a
warning
to
Aaron
Finch
in
the
IPL,
commented
on
Gambhir’s
tweet
after
it
was
described
as
a
“bad
take”
in
replies.

“His
point
is
that
if
this
is
right
,
that
was
right.
If
that
was
wrong
,
this
is
wrong
too.
Fair
assessment?”
tweeted
Ashwin.

“Absolutely
it
was
a
wonderful
hit
by
@davidwarner31.
Great
shot,”
the
senior
Indian
off-spinner
wrote.

Warner
went
on
to
make
49
off
30
balls
with
the
help
of
three
fours
and
as
many
sixes.
Matthew
Wade
hit
three
consecutive
sixes
off
Shaheen
Shah
Afridi
to
notch
up
the
sensational
five-wicket
win.
