If not the BCCI, it’s Australian cricketer David Warner’s on-field argument with Indian batsman Rohit Sharma during the Ind-Aus ODI match on Sunday that’s ruffling feathers. Warner told Sharma to “speak English” — and later explained that it was the only language he understood, but social media continues to call the comment “racist”. Meanwhile, Warner has been fined 50% of his match fee for the spat. SOME TWITTER REACTIONS
