Former Australian cricketer Brad Hogg seems to be very active on Twitter. Via his handle, Hogg didn’t miss the opportunity to poke at Dinesh Karthik after the latter's recent on-air remarks. The wicket-keeper batsman was quoted saying “Bats are like neighbour’s wife” during the second ODI between England and Sri Lanka.
Brad Hogg comes up with a hilarious reply on DK's comment
After Karthik issued his apology and the matter cooled down, but Brad Hogg decided to take center stage and had a cheeky response for the 36-year-old. “@DineshKarthik your neighbourhood is on high alert now,” said the former Australian spinner.
Earlier, the comment made by DK was deemed sexist by a lot of cricket fans across the world. Even the former KKR captain himself said that he received a lot of stick from his mother and wife for these words, and went on to aplogise during the third ODI between England and Sri Lanka on Sunday.
"I want to apologise for what happened in last game. It’s not really what I intended. I just got it all wrong. I apologise to everybody. It’s definitely not the right thing to say. I got a lot of stick from my wife and my mum for saying that. I am really sorry that it shouldn’t happen again," he said on-air during the 20th over of the first innings.
Fans also were quick to notice that this was an honest mistake by Karthik who recently started as a commentator during the World Test Championship final.
