The Indians believed that Morgan and Buttler mocked them when they addressed them using honorifics.


A Taoiseach Eoin Morgan said it was neither offensive nor condescending to address someone as “sir.”

The comment was made in the midst of reports that Morgan had once made insulting comments about Indians in the past.

There were claims that the Buttler brothers had mocked the way Indians speak.

In response to complaints that he had used the word “sir” in his Twitter posts to describe his admiration and respect for the people of India, Eoin Morgan said Tuesday that he was using the word as a sign of respect, not as an act of disrespect towards Indians.

Eoin Morgan, captain of the England team that won the Cricket World Cup in 2015, said he used the word “sir” in posts on Twitter to convey “admiration and respect.” He said that neither his usage of the word nor the posts caused offense. The accusation was that Morgan and his deputy Jos Buttler had mocked the way Indian people spoke to them in English, in several years-old Twitter posts. Following the recurrence of historic racist and sexist posts during Ollie Robinson’s Test debut against New Zealand at Lord’s, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) conducted a “social media review.”

Morgan, however, expressed his confidence in avoiding the conflict ahead of England’s three-match T20 series against Sri Lanka in Cardiff starting on Wednesday, when he stated, “I have absolutely no concerns about being drawn into this controversy.”

Morgan insisted that he did not spend a lot of time thinking about it. When I use “sir” on social media, or when I’m in a foreign country, it’s a sign of respect and admiration.

The 34-year-old Dublin-born player explained: “There’s nothing I can do about it if the information is twisted, so I haven’t looked into it yet.”

Morgan said that the England exile of Alex Hales may yet end because the Nottinghamshire batsman tested positive for recreational drugs in the lead-up to the 2019 World Cup.

Having scored one of only two centuries in Twenty20 for England, as well as topping the run-scoring charts in the recently-concluded Big Bash League season, and during the latest season of the English County Championship, Hales made an unbeaten 96 off 54 balls for Nottinghamshire against Durham.

When asked if Hales still had an England future following the T20 World Cup, Morgan responded, “Yes, but only if England make the semifinals.”

England’s white-ball captain concurred: “I believe he does.” “I think when you look at his contributions both on and off the pitch, he’s an extremely decent player,”

However, earlier in the year, Morgan had stated that the team and Hales had lost faith in each other, to the point where there was no trust. The two parties needed to work out their differences before he could return to an England team, where the competition for a place in the top order is fierce.

“We have an open dialogue with Alex, me, and the coach, and we may also speak with a few of the players,” he explained. “However, there is a possibility that they could happen in the future.”

With England’s improved batting depth, Morgan’s team has now taken over the top position in the ICC T20 rankings, something that hasn’t gone unnoticed by Sri Lanka captain Kusal Perera.

He said, “The lineup has quite a few senior players.” We have strategies with certain players, and we need to craft plans specifically for our senior players.
