Skipper Eoin Morgan and Dinesh Karthik intervened to keep the situation from spiraling out of control. KKR defeated DC by three wickets in a low-scoring match, but the issue began when Ashwin attempted to steal an extra run after KKR fielder Rahul Tripathi’s throw ricocheted off the DC captain. An enraged Ashwin, who was leaving the field, was seen charging towards the KKR captain when Karthik stepped in and gave his Tamil Nadu teammate a friendly pat on the back, requesting him to leave.
In the end, it was Ashwin who got the final laugh with Morgan. Ashwin took the wicket of KKR skipper with a off break, and he was caught at slip. After taking his wicket, Ashwin charged towards the embarrassed Morgan, his eyes red with wrath, yelling “C’mon, C’mon, C’mon.
“Look, I know that when Rahul Tripathi threw the ball and it ricocheted off Rishabh Pant’s body, Ashwin called for it and they started to run,” Karthik said at the post-match press conference.
After the match the world was divided into two parts and twitter was flooded with tweets from across the globe. Here are some interesting tweets.

It seems people forgot how England won the world cup in 2019. Former Indian Player Virender Sehwag tweeted “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”.
