On the fourth day, the game had to be stopped for some time when the Indian team complained to the umpires. After this, six spectators were removed from the field and Cricket Australia apologized.

Warner wrote on Instagram, ‘I want to apologize to Mohammad Siraj and the Indian team. Racism or abuse is never acceptable anywhere and hopefully the audience will behave better from the beginning ‘.
Regarding the match, Warner said that it was good to return after being out in the first two games due to injury.
He said, ‘It was great to return. The result of the match, however, is not what we wanted but it is Test cricket. We played good cricket for five days. But congratulations to India who made a great comeback. This is the reason why we love cricket so much, it is not an easy game. Now, watch the deciding match in Brisbane and play there is different fun.
