Former England captain Nasser Hussain has stirred yet another controversy by terming Indian fielders as donkeys.

Hussain, who was commentator during the one-off T20 match at Manchester on Wednesday praised some of the young talented players for their fielding but said there were some other fielders in the team who were lethargic in their approach to fielding.

Hussain was quoted in Times Now as saying, “I would say the difference between the fielding is that England is all round a good fielding side.

“I do believe that India has few three or four very good fielders who we have highlighted and they have one or two donkeys in the field still.”

Indian commentator who earlier had a spat with the former England captain did not respond to the ‘donkey remark.
