Damien Martyn said that  I just pushed him a little bit. A little nudge. He was in the front of our photo, wasn’t he?

Damien Martyn recollects past

“I don’t know what happened there! I just pushed him a little bit. A little nudge. He was in the front of our photo, wasn’t he? He made his speech and didn’t want to leave the stage. Brad Hogg asked (Pawar to get off) nicely. Ricky Ponting did the same. So I just gave him a nice little Aussie sledge, like a nudge. I didn’t think nothing of it. But it turned into a nightmare.” Damien Martyn said

“I got into the changing room and the team manager was there with the phone. He asked me to talk to a Cricket Australia official. I was like ‘jeez that moved fast! That escalated!’ Then I had to write a letter.” Damien Martyn said

The former cricketer further said that

“The next day, they were burning flags of me in the streets in India. And there was a donkey with my name on it with a mob around it! I’m not sure that donkey survived that day! That was one of the highlights of my career… someone put my name on a donkey! I tell my son the whole time, you’ve made it (big) when you have that done to you,”
