Responding to what he makes of Shane Warne’s current feedback directed towards his “selfish” behaviour as Australia captain, Steve Waugh stated he has “never bought” into jibes at him made by Warne. He stated he had no “feud” with Warne because it has at all times been the spinner saying issues about him and Waugh not responding.
“People keep saying it’s a feud. But to me, a feud’s between two people. I’ve never bought into it, so it’s just one person,” the World Cup winning-skipper was quoted as saying by the Sydney Morning Herald.
Reacting to a statistic that Waugh held the doubtful document of being concerned in most run-outs, Warne tweeted not too long ago: “Wow! So S Waugh was involved in the most ever run outs in test cricket (104) & ran his partner out 73 times – is that correct? Mmmmmmmmm.”
“For the record AGAIN & I’ve said this 1000 times – I do not hate S Waugh at all. FYI – I picked him in my all time best Australian team recently. Steve was easily the most selfish cricketer that I ever played with and this stat,” he stated in one other tweet.
Warne has made no secret of his animosity in direction of his former skipper, with the dispute between them having surfaced since Warne bought dropped throughout a Test tour of the West Indies in 1999.
Warne had known as Waugh the “most selfish cricketer” in his autobiography in 2018 as nicely. “Steve Waugh was the most selfish player I ever played with and was only worried about averaging 50,” he had stated.
Waugh, for his half, has at all times stated that he doesn’t really feel the necessity to reply to occasions which have occurred twenty years in the past and that no matter choices he took as captain had been for the great of the staff.
