Jonny who was at the non-striker end being asked upon the heated conversation he said:
“I didn’t actually hear anything, because there are a lot of squealing people in the crowds. I couldn’t (tell you) the exact words that were said.
“It’s something that’s probably going more out of the game, verbals and things like that. If you go back 10 years it was a bigger part of the game. But I think you’ve also got to respect you’ve got guys out there who are very passionate, representing their country in the heat of battle.
“At some point, there are going to be words said. That’s the nature of professional sport. But I don’t know what was said. I don’t really get too involved with all that kind of stuff.”
Strokes is a very aggressive player and during the last series at Bangladesh he was charged 15% of the match fees for using abusive words against their player
