During Delhi Capital's match against Kolkata Knight Riders on Tuesday, Ravichandran Ashwin and Eoin Morgan got into a furious dispute. When Ashwin attempted to sprint after a toss ricocheted off DC skipper Rishabh Pant, the two collided. Morgan objected to the fleeing and got into a furious argument with Ashwin. Former India opener Virender Sehwag took to Twitter on Wednesday to criticise Eoin Morgan over the deflected overthrow incident.

Sehwag cited example from 2019 World Cup final in which a throw ricocheted off Ben Stokes' bat and went for a boundary that helped Morgan-led England to tie the match against New Zealand. England went on to win the match on a boundary counts rule after the Super Over also ended in a tie and thus won their maiden ICC World Cup title.

"On July 14th , 2019 when it ricocheted of Ben Stokes bat in the final over, Mr Morgan sat on a Dharna outside Lord's and refused to hold the World cup trophy and New Zealand won. Haina ? Bade aaye, 'doesn't appreciate' waale," Sehwag tweeted along with a picture of Dinesh Karthik's post-match comments on the on-field altercation between Morgan and Ashwin.

Ashwin had the last laugh in the contest, dismissing Morgan for a second-ball duck. At first slip, Morgan fended off a length delivery that landed in the palms of Lalit Yadav. Ashwin was ecstatic as he celebrated his wicket after dispatching Morgan. The Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, were defeated by KKR, who won by three wickets with 10 balls to spare.
