One of the highlights of the game was the argument between Mohammed Siraj and Phil Salt when both got into a verbal spat in the fifth over of the run chase. Seeing the argument, India women’s bowling all-rounder Shikha Pandey took to Twitter and wrote, “Swearing won’t help anyone win any games! #JustSaying.”

However, her tweet didn’t go well with a lot of fans as they started abusing at her to express their anger, which made Pandey give them a fitting reply as well. She tweeted, “I’ve always been in awe of Mohammed Siraj’s bowling. What he has achieved in his career thus far is incredible, inspiring, & incomparable,” she tweeted.

“So folks trying really hard to make it appear as if I implied something else please take your conversations elsewhere. Also, if you think hurling abuse on my TL or some one else’s helps you get your point across pls continue to do so. I can speak for myself, it does NOT,” she added.
