Ollie Robinson and Usman Khawaja were involved in an argument across the two innings of the first Ashes Test.
The first Ashes test for 2023 clearly ended in favor of the Australian visitors. Pat Cummins’ team beat England by two wickets to get the series off to a great start. Despite the thrilling chase, the altercation between Olly Robinson and Usman Khawaja remains one of the game’s biggest talking points.
Both players were involved in an altercation over two innings, during which Robinson sacked Kawaja after dismissing him in the first inning, to which Kawaja responded in Game 5.
Recently, England’s Pacer revealed that he had spoken to Khawaja after an altercation and said his actions were spur-of-the-moment and not personal.
“It’s such a big thing to leave Ussi (Usman Khawaja) until I got off the field when my friend was texting me and found my phone exploded and it all started “I just got caught. I didn’t bowl very well in the first inning and I slipped in the second over and lost a little confidence,” said Ollie Robinson of Wisden. said in a column.
“And I hadn’t played much in a while, so I tried to come back a bit. And obviously Ussy was a big wicket and played great.” “It wasn’t about Ussy. It was just one of those events. I was caught in the moment and set myself free,” he added.
Later I also spoke with Ussy: Robinson
Robinson also shared what Kawaja had told him after both players chatted about their altercation, and Jimmy Anderson and Brett Lee who were on fire at the time. I also mentioned many legend examples like let yourself go.
“We all saw it with Jimmy (Anderson), Brody, [Glenn] McGrath, Brett Lee. I do this sometimes. After that, I talked to Ussy, but everyone was safe. He just said, “Hey, be careful what you say.” It meant nothing to him and we had a pleasant chat. “He’s a nice guy, we’ve played against each other a few times and he’s always gotten along,” Robinson said.
