Brisbane: The Border Gavaskar Trophy between Team India and Australia has taken a fierce turn. Now the war of this series is not limited to the ground. There have been many controversies in this series and one last test has survived but the debate on some issue is on.
Tim Paine’s War
Now there is a debate between Australia captain Tim Paine and Sunil Gavaskar. Penn has said that he has no intention of getting into a war of words with Gavaskar and said that he is not even worried about the great Indian batsman’s assessment of his captaincy.
During the Sydney Test, Penn (Tim Paine) had accused Ravichandran Ashwin, after which Gavaskar said that this does not suit the captain of the national team and as a captain, Penn’s days remain to be counted.
Asked if he had heard Gavaskar’s comment, Penn said, “I heard but I don’t want to get into it.” I have no intention of a war with Sunil Gavaskar ‘.
He said, ‘He is free to express his opinion but I don’t mind even a little bit, keep saying that but in the end I have nothing to do with it’.

Penn (Tim Paine) publicly apologized for his conduct. He said that from now on he will keep playing with a smile on his face.
He said, ’99 percent of my career I have been leisurely. Only then can I do my best. That day I was impulsive.
He said, ‘I looked at the audience and I realized that I am captaining the team in a Test match. I always dreamed it. I will play a lot of competition cricket and will play with the intention of winning ‘.
Penn clarified for Smith
Asked if he would continue the sparring. Penn (Tim Paine) said, ‘I will 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 has to be shown to the umpires, officials and players.
He also said that the unnecessary controversy of Rishabh Pant’s attempt to erase the batting guard has not affected Steve Smith.
He said, ‘We have seen what he has faced in the last three years. He then returned to straight form and performed brilliantly in the Ashes. He is very strong mentally ‘.
