Harbhajan Singh and Gautam Gambhir ask former Australian cricketers to condemn David Warner for hitting a six on the ball of Muhammad Hafeez in the T20 World Cup 2021 semifinal.
The Indian cricketers slammed the Australian cricketer for stealing six runs on Muhammad Hafeez’s double-bounce ball. The ball had slipped away from the hand of Muhammad Hafeez in the match. The ball had a double-bounce as it reached David Warner. He should have left the ball instead of smashing a six on it.
Indian cricketers slammed the Australia cricketer for the poor show of spirit of the game in the match. “What an absolutely pathetic display of the spirit of the game by Warner! #Shameful What say @ashwinravi99?” Gambhir tweeted.
"Ricky Ponting, Shane Warne talk a lot about Sportsmanship, let's see what they've to say about David Warner Six. Ball slipped from Hafeez's hand Warner shouldn't have done that, he stole 6 runs, I want to see if they tweet about it": Gambhir#PAKVSAUS pic.twitter.com/QK5rW69nhH

“Ricky Ponting, Shane Warne talks a lot about sportsmanship, let’s see what they’ve to say about David Warner Six. The ball slipped from Hafeez’s hand Warner shouldn’t have done that, he stole 6 runs, I want to see if they tweet about it,” said Hafeez.
He said in an Indian cricket show that while former Australian cricketers talk big about the spirit of game and cricket why don’t they condemn their own cricketer, David Warner. Gambhir added that they even criticized the Indian bowler Ravichandran Ashwin.
The former Indian cricketer racked up immense criticism from foreign sports journalists as they come out in support of David Warner.
Meanwhile, the Australian opener David Warner was caught behind by Muhammad Rizwan at the delivery of bowler Shadab Khan. Warner did not review the decision of the umpire and walked back to the pavilion.
