‘You were in nappies. Show respect’: Twitter slams Labuschagne’s reply to Sachin | Cricket

Australian batter Marnus Labuschagne is facing the ire of fans on social media after replying to a tweet from Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar. Tendulkar, the former batter from India, congratulated the Indian women’s cricket team. Good luck with their match against Australia as the sport returned to CWG after 24 years – the last time cricket was part of CWG was way back in 1998. “Great to see cricket back in the Commonwealth Games. wonderful game to a newer audience. Best wishes to @BCCIWomen’s team for their #CWG22 campaign,” Tendulkar tweeted.

Labuschagne responded to the tweet, saying, “Agree Sachin. Aus v India is going to be a great opener too.” And this put him in hot water. Fans felt that by addressing Tendulkar as just “Sachin”, Labuschagne showed no respect for the Indian battle legend. Users were quick to pounce on Labuschagne and knocked the batter out of Australia for not calling him “Sachin Sir”. Here are some of the tweets.

Tendulkar had high praise for Labuschagne in 2020, saying the Australian batter reminded him of himself. Complimenting Labuschagne, Tendulkar said: “His footwork is so precise. So he would be the one I would say,” said the former India captain when asked which modern batsman reminded him of himself.

“I happened to watch the second Test game (Ashes) at Lord’s between England and Australia. When Steve Smith got injured I saw Labuschagne’s second innings. I was sitting with my father-in-law. I saw Marnus get hit from Jofra Archer’s second ball and post that, the 15 minutes he hit I said, ‘This player looks special.’ There’s something about him.”

Labuschagne, in turn, said he was extremely grateful for Tendulkar’s kind words. “It was pretty amazing, it’s one that definitely when I saw it, I was quick to read it and it really touched me. Great words from someone of that caliber. I was very grateful for his words and just got really excited Labuschagne had told cricket.com.au.

Women in India didn’t get their CWG 2022 campaign off to the best start as they lost a three-wicket thriller to Australia. Harmanpreet Kaur’s half-century and a quick 48 from Shafali Varma lifted India to 154/8, and when Renuka Singh wiped out Australia’s top order and reduced it to 49/5, India was a favorite to gallop home. Ashleigh Gardner’s half-century, however, thwarted those plans as she, along with Grace Harris’ 37 and an undefeated 18 from Alana King, led Australian women across the line.
