The fourth Test between India and England at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai was the epicentre of an ugly episode that occurred between James Anderson and a few Indian players. Things began after Anderson made a poor remark about Virat Kohli, stating that home pitches had apparently hidden the flaws within Kohli’s batting.

 

To this, Indian all-rounder and champion off-spinner R. Ashwin responded on the fifth day of the Test in the middle of the proceedings. Ashwin went towards Anderson and stated that his remarks were made in absolutely poor taste and rather than time and again grumbling, the latter must accept his defeat gracefully.

 

Post the game, England skipper Alastair Cook admitted that he was quite “disappointed” with the confrontation that took place on the ground between Ashwin and Anderson. Cook went on to say that the pacer’s comments were completely blown out of proportion.

 

Former England skipper and Sky commentator Michael Vaughan has added fuel to this fire, as he tweeted that why wasn’t Ashwin charged for dissent, while England all-rounder Ben Stokes was charged during the third Test in Mohali.

 

It must be remembered that after Stokes was dismissed in the first innings of the Mohali test, he wasn’t too satisfied with something, and directed a mouthful towards the Indian camp and Virat Kohli in particular. Post the end of that game, Stokes was charged for dissent by the ICC.

 

Vaughan is his tweet mentioned that Ashwin too should be charged for the same offence for his doing in Mumbai. Check out the tweet from Michael Vaughan below.
