IPL 2021: Dinesh Karthik REVEALS reason behind Ravichandran Ashwin and Eoin Morgan’s heated exchange


Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik has revealed the reason behind skipper Eoin Morgan and Delhi Capitals’ spinner Ravichandran Ashwin’s altercation on the sector throughout the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 recreation.

“I know that Rahul Tripathi threw the ball and it hit Rishabh Pant and then it ricocheted of that and Ashwin started to run. I do not think Morgan appreciates that, he is someone when the ball hits the batter, he expects them not to run because of the spirit of cricket. It is a very grey area, a very interesting topic. I have my own opinion on it but I can just say I am happy to play peacemaker and thing has come to a good standstill right now,” mentioned Karthik throughout a digital post-match press convention.

Ashwin and Morgan were involved in a heated exchange after the previous was dismissed by Tim Southee within the final over of the DC innings on the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Tuesday. DC skipper Rishabh Pant and Ashwin had picked a second run off the final ball of the nineteenth over and that appeared to have irked the KKR outfit as some think about it to be in opposition to the rules of Fair Play to take a run when the ball thrown by the fielder ricochets off the batter.

Meanwhile, Nitish Rana performed an unbeaten knock of 36 runs as KKR chased down a goal of 128 with three wickets in hand to defeat Delhi Capitals within the nineteenth over. KKR now has 10 factors and is positioned on the fourth spot.
