    If you take a step back and take a look he is perfectly allowed to respond the way he responded. If some random neighbour made a crass joke about you, you don't want the whole world to tell you how to respond to it. These are off field incidents. He can do whatever he wants. We are living in a world where religious jokes somehow hurt people and go after the comedians. But when someone personally attack you he can't even respond to it the way you want to without whole world judging you?

    Coming to the tweet, that was completely unnecessary from Ashwin. He should have some respect for his captain's idol.

    The whole thing is nonsense where 2 adults can't behave appropriately for their age ashwin could have used something a bit less harsh and gibbs didn't need to body shame, my only problem was people somehow claiming csk were involved in match fixing which they clearly were not.

    Gibbs dug his own grave, most have forgotten his fixing past...just one stupid tweet of him brought back his dirty past to limelight. Biggest loser in this Gibbs himself, who started it. Don't get personal with anyone Gibbs, Throwing stone from glass house stuff #LessonsLearnt

    Leaving aside Ashwin's hypersensitivity, thing to note here is that doing actually illegal thing and selling your country for few bucks never leaves you. Its like a badge of eternal shame. Any troll or angry person can take you down a peg instantly.

    Now oppositions know what ticks Ashwin.

    I am sure Ashwin is regretting for tweeting that, it was probably due to burst of anger, he thought that was nothing better to say to rile him up. He didn't say sorry still, shows it has hurt him.

    You will see Ashwin and Gibbs tweetpic dining at some diner soon.

    But lesson for young players, hope young players realize that once you get caught up in the web of fixing, there is no turning back for you. People will never ever look the same way ever again.

    Yup. Lot of people will never trust and respect you ever again. Some people just don't like players without integrity and self respect.

    Definitely not on the same level as someone like Cronje, anyway.
    Even agreeing to fix match and also recieving financial benefits for doing so is fixing, regardless how the events unfold. There is a reason why players who failed to report approached by bookies are punished. Here not only he failed to report but took money and agreed to fix the match.

    In my view that is cheating.

    What gives Gibbs the right to joke about Ashwine's athleticism or lack of?. In a public space such as Twitter? Are they mates?

    If not, then Ashwin made his point in a brutal but very clear manner. Don't dish it if you can't take it.

    I think both are at fault here. It was a crass comment by Gibbs, and it appears that Ashwin cannot take a joke. Both did a good job of embarrassing themselves on social media.

    Wow never thought that a fixer would get this kind of sympathy/support.

    To mock someone’s physical condition is fine but calling a fixer(which is a fact) is crime?

    Beauty of PP. Any rubbish against India/Indians would get overwhelming response here.

    This.

    Jokes between mates in a bar or dressing room is fine but Gibbs made fun of Ashwin's what could be a disability, which is cheap shot. Ashwin only responded with FACT and owned him.
    Gibbs have history of making fun of cricketers and was rightfully put to place.

    IKR

    In desi culture making a fun of someone's disability seems like cool thing to do, otherwise fans would be supporting Ashwin.

    Yes Ash responded emotionally but then again no one likes if a random person makes fun of disability on a public forum. Gibbs should've refrained from making fun of someone's phsyical disability or else he will keep getting owned like this.

    IIRC Gibs said real bad things publicly about his own team mates just after his fixing saga got over and also in his Autobiography 'To the Point' #BigLoser

    He does come across as douche and thinks its cool to make fun of other players, but will play a victim card if someone gives it back.

    What more shocking is that fans on PP and on twitter are actually mocking Ash.

    Ashwin responded emotionally as someone made fun of his disability on a social media. I have disability too and if someone makes fun of it then i would respond in similar way. Its natural no one likes if people mock disability.

    This whole situation could've avoided had Gibbs not poke his nose in someone's business.

    No need for the victim mentality, many of the people who are criticising Ashwin are Indians, whether that applies to this thread or to other social media platforms. Perhaps ask them for their reasoning.

    Maybe Gibbs didn't know? I certainly wasn't aware of it tbh, just thought he's not really an athlete and is generally a slow mover.

    Im certainly not with the victim mentality. Just stating the obvious. Just browse through any thread which has ‘India’ in it. You’ll understand what I’m saying.

    It's a Pakistani forum, not sure what you were expecting.

    But in this case, pretty much everyone is bashing Ashwin whether that's on other forums or social media. Your portrayal of it being exclusive to PP is incorrect.

    It doesn't affect the size of his belly tho.

    Many athletes are flatfooted.Can you give me a source of Ashwin being one.I didn't know and pretty sure Gibbs didn't either

    I think you are reading too much into it. Gibbs, like most other people, is unlikely to be aware of the fact that Ashwin is flat-footed. He simply took a swipe against him because Ashwin is considered to be a slouch in the field. It was a stupid comment and not witty at all.

    However, Ashwin response suggests that he has a chip on his shoulder against the South Africans and was eagerly waiting for a chance to do some match-fixing point scoring. He appeared **********, and tried to save face later on by stating that he was only joking, even though his tone clearly suggests that he took offense to what Gibbs said.

    Gibbs should not have tweeted that but Ashwin could have handled it better.

    In this situation,I don't care whether Gibbs is a fixer or not and I certainly don't have any Sympathy for him.Ashwin showed lack of maturity and you would expect this sort of reply from a 10 year rude child.It doesn't take a genius to figure out that Ashwin embarrassed himself and was the biggest loser in this Twitter spat.

    At the end of the day,

    1)Ashwin was the one who had to delete his Tweet.
    2)He had to retract back by saying it was a Joke(Really?Did it look like Joke to Anybody) and basically sent an invitation for dinner to Gibbs.

    Ashwin made a mistake and I am sure even he realizes it.And No,one mistake doesn't make him an evil pathetic man.
