Ben Stokes responds to Warne’s tweet
Ravichandran Ashwin and Jos Buttler have been in the spotlight since the mankading incident took place in the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Monday.
Kings XI Punjab skipper Ravichandran Ashwin stunned the cricket world with his action and since then, the spirit of the game has been questioned.
Meanwhile, cricket experts from all around the world gave their opinion on Twitter including commentator Harsha Bhogle, who defended Ashwin and said it was within the last of cricket.
Sorry – one more thing to add. If Ben Stokes did what Ashwin did to @imVkohli it would be ok ? I’m just very disappointed in Ashwin as I thought he had integrity & class. Kings lost a lot of supporters tonight. Especially young boys and girls ! I do hope the BCCI does something

However, former Australia leg-spinner Shane Warne didn’t like his opinion and also said that his opinion would have been different if it was any international cricketer instead of the Indian off-spinner.
While in the other tweet, Warne asked everyone will it still be ok if Ben Stokes did something similar to Virat Kohli in a World Cup final.
England all-rounder Ben Stokes, who’s part of the Rajasthan Royals has been mentioned all over twitter since then and he has finally responded to all the tweets and insisted that he would have never done something like this.
