The star of the 5th T20I against England who remained unbeaten for 80 off 52 balls had went into verbal spat with opposition batsman Jos Buttler, when the latter got out. The incident took place in the 14th over, when he was dismissed by Bhuvneshwar Kumar in 14th over.
But England skipper Eoin Morgan said, “I don’t know actually (what exactly happened). Obviously, Virat is very animated when he plays, a big character in the game, that’s just who he is; he rides the emotions of the game. Sometimes in tight games, people can have conflicts, that’s not uncommon. I think that was the instance,” said Eoin Morgan.
Talking further about Ben Stokes, Morgan added, “The role Ben has played for us in the middle order, when he has had opportunities to play, he has done a really exceptional job. It is actually a really difficult role to fulfil.
It’s something he has taken on board and embraced. In the last game, he played really really well. We would have liked him to kick on, but it didn’t necessarily happen, but his contributions when given the opportunity have been really well,” said Eoin Morgan.
