Almost 20 days have gone past, India and Australia series is done and dusted but the controversies are still on. When the series got ended, Indian captain Virat Kohli gave it a new flavour, as during the last day’s press conference he claimed that few of the Australian team members are no more friends with him.
On Friday, off-spinner Nathan Lyon said he will still love to hang out with Indian captain and offer him a glass of lemonade. Lyon also said he loves to forget on field incidents.
And now Australia’s vice-captain David Warner said he still possess good friendship with Indian players. He feels you need to defeat the opposition as the ultimate goal is to win matches for your country. Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner said in charity event of Fanatic Sports Museum where he donated his bat and his gloves.
“We always gel very well. It is a different feeling when you put both the teams on the field. Our ultimate goal is yo go out there and win for the country and we will do anything to try and beat each other”
According to Warner, such incidents tend to bring players closer and build some strong friendship. Though, the series was hard fought for both the side on and off the field, the rivalry between India – Australia will intensify itself more.
“There were antics on and off the field in the test series but we are also good friends. We enjoy a laugh that brings everyone together in international cricket. We have to keep the game in nice fair spirit to make sure that we have grown the game of cricket.”
