Brisbane: The Border Gavaskar Trophy between the Indian team and Australia has taken a fierce turn. However, the war in this series is not limited to the field. There has been a lot of controversy in this series and one final test has survived but the debate on one issue is ongoing.
Tim Paine’s War
There is now a debate between Australian captain Tim Paine and Sunil Gavaskar. Penn said he had no plans to engage in a war of words with Gavaskar and said he didn’t even care about his captain’s great Indian drummer rating.
During the Sydney test, Penn (Tim Paine) had blamed Ravichandran Ashwin, after which Gavaskar said that was not suitable for the captain of the national team and that as captain Penn’s days were cast.
When asked if he heard Gavaskar’s comment, Penn replied, “I heard but I don’t want to get into the thick of it.” I have no intention of war with Sunil Gavaskar ”.
He said: “He is free to express his opinion but it doesn’t even bother me a little, keep saying it but in the end I have nothing to do with it”.

Penn (Tim Paine) has publicly apologized for his conduct. He said that from now on he will continue to play with a smile on his face.
He said, “99 percent of my career I have been quiet. Only then can I do my best. That day, I was impulsive.
He said: “I looked at the audience and realized that I am captain of the team in a test match. I’ve always dreamed of it. I will play a lot of competitive cricket and will play with the intention of winning ”.
Penn clarified for Smith
He was asked if he would continue the fight. Penn (Tim Paine) said, “I’m going to show the natural game. I have always played with a calm mind. That day was a bit lost. A little laughter is a joke, but be aware of the stump mic. A little more respect needs to be shown to referees, officials and players.
He also said the unnecessary controversy of Rishabh Pant’s attempt to wipe out the batting had no effect on Steve Smith.
He said: “We have seen what he has had to face over the past three years. He then returned to the right form and played brilliantly in the ashes. He is very strong mentally ”.
