Australian leg spinner Shane Warne has been an absolute legend on the field without any doubt. However, one can connect countless controversies with the man. Be it his rifts with former skipper Steve Waugh or his random remarks here and there, Warne has managed to be the centre of attraction for long now.
Even a few days back, he was in trouble and was grilled by the social media when he called Cheteshwar Pujara ‘Steve’ because he found his name too difficult to pronounce.
The legendary leg-spinner was also in the news for his controversial and high-profile affair with actress Elizabeth Hurley.
Once again, Warne again finds himself in the thick of things, after he dropped the ‘F’ bomb on air after the conclusion of play on Day 2 of the third Test between India and Australia. Warne was apparently frustrated by Australian batsman Marnus Labuschagne’s play at the crease.
“Jesus it’s annoying. No. Just F***ing bat properly,” said Warne on air which was broadcast by the Fox Sports Channel.
Former Australian all-rounder Andrew Symonds too, was with his old teammate and laughed about Labuschagne and said he should be given the hog pile. The former all-rounder also added that Labuschagne should keep his s*** up, and also mentioned the word ADD, which stands for Attention Deficit Disorder.
“That or his ADD. Mate, if you keep that s**t up, we’re going to squash your guts out of your arse,” said Symonds as both the former teammates ended the conversation with laughter.

India Had a Good Day 2
The Indian team would be satisfied with their efforts especially with the bowlers. With superb efforts from Jadeja and Bumrah, they were able to bowl Australia out for 338. Steve Smith was the pick of the batsman who scored a fabulous 131 runs.
The Indian batsman in return scored 92 runs for 2 wickets with both the openers returning to the pavilion after finding a good start. Rohit was caught and bold by Hazlewood for 26 and Shubman Gill who looked really good on the middle scored 50 runs.
