The Response Of The Indian Camp and the way The Australian Team Handled It Later
Vengsarkar commented: You expect such behavior from uneducated people. If they wanted to pose for photographs, they might have politely requested him. this is often appalling.
Tendulkar added: it’s important to point out a reference to an individual who is so dear to the cricketers and is involved in cricket. Such incidents should be avoided.
However, Ponting did later clear away the fog, issuing an apology for Pawar and therefore the BCCI boss also accepted it with grace. That did mean that the difficulty was cleared off rather quickly. it’s eventually helped both the Indian and therefore the Australian players. thanks to the great relationship between the 2 teams, they need had fierce rivalries and friendships within the IPL also now.
