Australia’s David Warner has defended himself on his “Speak English” comment to Rohit Sharma. David Warner confronted Rohit after he took the extra run of the overthrow which might have brushed his leg.

“When I went over to say something to him, he sort of said something in their language,” said Warner.

“I said ‘speak English’ because, if you’re going to say something for me to understand, theoretically I cannot speak Hindi.”

Speaking to Sky Sports Radio, he added: “So I did the polite thing and asked him to speak English. Therefore he did and I can’t repeat what he said.”

David Warner was charged 50% of his match fee after being admitted to a charge of conduct contrary to the spirit of the game.

Sharma scored 138 in vain as Australia won the match with one over to spare. The Test series also saw some pretty bad sledging issues especially between Mitchell Johnson and Virat Kohli.

“I thought I was OK by asking him to speak English and I am going to say it a couple of times if he keeps saying it in Hindi,” added Warner.

“If people get on the wrong side of me, I’m not going to back down.”
