In the second Test match of the current series between India and England, the heat seen on the field between the players of both the teams has now turned into a war of words outside the field. Looking at the manner in which both the teams are now throwing arrows of words at each other, it seems that this series has taken the form of war of words.
A day earlier, Indian opener KL Rahul had said that if any rival player tries to slap one of our cricketers, then the remaining 10 players also take a similar stand against the opposing team. After this statement of Rahul, now the head coach of England team Chris Silverwood has also jumped into this fight. He said that he is not afraid of fighting and if India tries to bring him down, he will also respond.
India defeated England by 151 runs in the second Test at Lord’s to take a 1-0 lead in the series. Now the third Test match between the two teams will be played at Handigley from August 25. Usually, the time between two Test matches is used by teams to strengthen their preparation or to refresh themselves through light-hearted pranks. But, in the current India-England series, nothing like this seems to be happening, but after the tense activities during the second Test, now both the teams are attacking each other.
Even 24 hours had not passed since Rahul’s statement that Silverwood has now given such a statement, after which the war of words can intensify.
Silverwood said, ‘One thing is that we are not afraid of fighting at all. If they (Indian players) push us, we will also respond. We are disappointed with the result, but it was a good test. There were some differences here as well. I think it’s good. The players clashed and I enjoyed.
Now it has to be seen how far this war of words between the two teams goes and which team is successful in taking maximum advantage of it.
