Shane Warne (@ShaneWarne) 15 June 2017Warne had placed a bet with former India skipper Sourav Ganguly at the Aaj Tak Salaam Cricket in London last month that if Australia go down to England then he’ll wear an England shirt for a day.Ganguly had backed “better team” England to beat Australia and agreed to wear an Australian jersey if the two-time champions won.?? Just why is @ShaneWarne wearing an @englandcricket [email protected] is to blame! #BANvIND #CT17 ICC (@ICC) June 15, 2017Needing victory to book their place in the last four, Australia registered a fighting 277/9 against the hosts. In reply, England were jolted early but a 159-run stand between captain Eoin Morgan (87) and centurion Ben Stokes (102 not out) ensured the Three Lions remained unbeaten with six points from three matches.advertisementAustralia lacked game time before coming into the contest as they batted only 25 overs in the first two games. Both their matches against New Zealand and Bangladesh were washed out.Since clinching a second straight Champions Trophy title in 2009, the Australians haven’t won any of their six games in the tournament across two editions, held in England and Wales in 2013 and 2017.Here’s the full conversation between the two champions at the Aaj Tak Salaam Cricket:Ganguly: England is a very good side. They have a number of match-winners in their side. They have good side, better than Australia I firmly believe.Warne: You think Egland are better than Australia. You buying me dinner if Australia win on June 10 and it won’t be McDonald’s.Ganguly: I actually back England to win.Warne: That’s what I am saying, I’ll buy you dinner if England win.Ganguly: Fair enough.Warne: One more thing. If Australia win, you will wear an Australia shirt for day and of England win, I’ll wear an England shirt.Ganguly: No problem.last_img
