Nasser calls Indian fielders 'donkeys'

| September 1, 2011, 9:55 PM IST

Manchester: In yet another controversial remark, the former England skipper Nasser Hussain has equated some of the Indian fielders to donkeys during the Twenty20 match between India and England here on Wednesday.

It happened during the fourth over while England was batting. During commentary, Hussain talked about the agility of some of the young Indian lads but later he cut loose.

Nasser said that he was amazed the way some of the Indian fielders chase the ball and they behave much like donkeys.

Earlier also, an altercation had broken out between Ravi Shashtri and Hussain during commentary, but this time around Ravi did not react on Hussain's verbal outburst.

Ongoing tour of India to England has been marred by many controversies. This incident followed on the heels of former England skipper Michael Vaughan accusing VVS Laxman of using Vaseline on his bat to ditch the 'Hot Spot' technology.
