Sometimes the ‘apple of eyes’ also turns to get neglected, a similar has happened with the England Test skipper Ben Stokes. The guy who has a very good fan following among Indian cricket fans is now on the receiving end of the angst and criticism from the Indian fans themselves. It all happened when Stokes happened to jump into the debate that started after ‘mankading’ row in the last match of the three-match ODI series between India women and England women.

Just a day after Harsha Bhogle’s hard-lined message on the attitude of the English media towards Indian all-rounder Deepti Sharma for the incident that happened at the Lord’s, Stokes came up with a complaining message on Bhogle’s take about the English culture and the way media is treating Deepti.

The response from Stokes didn’t go down well with the Indian cricket fans and they took no time in lashing out at the veteran all-rounder. While standing with Harsha’s statement, Indian fans took to Twitter for teaching a lesson to the 31-year-old about the rules.

Notably, the fans went on to recall him to the incident that happened in the final of the 2019 ODI World Cup. Fans also slammed Stokes by saying that if he is so concerned about the spirit of the game then why he couldn’t give up those four runs awarded to him when an accidental deflection turned into a boundary?

Here’s how fans reacted to Ben Stokes’ comment:

Earlier, the veteran cricket pundit from India, Harsha Bhogle didn’t hold back when he explained the Englishmen’s tendency to demean anything and everything that doesn’t suit their psyche and comfort zone.

Bhogle also went on to say that if Charlie Dean had played there in the middle according to the rules and laws of the cricket, then it wouldn’t have given any chance to Sharma to opt for what she ended up doing.
