- Chris Silverwood insists issue is being dealt with in England
- Alex Hartley claims her message was taken out of context
The England batsman Rory Burns has earned a private rebuke following an unedifying online spat with women’s cricketer Alex Hartley in the aftermath of the Test team’s harrowing two-day defeat to India.
Burns, who was dropped for the 10-wicket loss in Ahmedabad, took umbrage with international spinner Hartley after she jokingly tweeted “Nice of the England boys to get this test match finished just before England Women play tonight” followed by four clapping emojis.
