Wellington: Jan 16, 2015

Australia stand-in skipper George Bailey has rejected former England cricketer Jonathan Agnew‘s comment that Australia have failed to contain sledging in the Test series against India following Phillip Hughes’ death.

Earlier, Agnew claimed that he had Michael Clarke‘s eulogy from Hughes’ funeral “tucked away ready to throw at the Australians”, signaling that they had failed to properly honour their late teammate Hughes in view of aggressive tactics employed against India.

In response, Bailey asserted that Australia didn’t agree with his comments, adding that he was entitled to his opinion, Stuff.co.nz reported.

However, Agnew further claimed that his argument had not been presented appropriately, adding that he wish to clear up any misunderstanding from his recent comments regarding sledging.
