Senior actress Kasthuri who is pretty much vocal in her social media handles about the current affairs of our country, is getting trolled by a number of her followers for comparing Bigg Boss show with IPL tournament based on a verbal spat that took place between Ravichandran Ashwin and Eoin Morgan during Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Capitals match in the ongoing Indian Premier League. Many commented on the actress’s post, alleging that she is making a comment without knowing the entire context of the incident.
In the match that took place between Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders on Tuesday, a verbal spat took place between ace spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and England Captain Eoin Morgan over Ashwin trying to get the second run after the ball hit the pads of his partner Rishabh Pant. Initially Ashwin had a conversation with bowler Tim Southee and the conversation turned argument after Eoin Morgan intervened to exchange words with the Chennai born spinner.
The altercation took place after a throw of Rahul Tripathi hit Rishab Pant’s arm and the strikers decided to take an extra run in the last ball of the 19th over. In the next over, Ashwin got out in the very first ball bowled by Tim Southee. When Ashwin tried to go for a maximum, the ball got caught by Nitish Rana at the deep square leg. This led to an exchange of words between Tim Southee and Ashwin. Eoin Morgan, captain of the Kolkata Knight Riders team also got involved in the argument.
Just when the situation was getting escalated, Dinesh Karthick intervened and calmed the situation. Talking about it to the media, Karthick said that Rahul Tripathi threw the ball and it hit Rishab Pant’s arm and the ball got ricocheted off that. “Ashwin called for it and they started to run. I don’t think Morgan appreciates that. He is some body who, when the ball hits the batsman or pad, expects them not to run in the spirit of cricket. It is a very grey area and a very interesting topic.” said Karthik and added that he has his own opinion on it.

She wanted senior players to show some grace in the spirit of the game and went on to say that the match between Delhi and Kolkata looked more like Bigg Boss than cricket. “IPL is watched diligently by young people in their formative age. Aggressiveness is all good, but it would be nice to see senior players show some grace in the spirit of the game.
