After the game, Wade was spotted shaking hands with Green and Warner as well as speaking to Green individually. After the game, they both appeared in an interview with 7Cricket where they described the incident.
During the interview, Green and Wade both looked at ease and were seen chuckling about what happened on the field.
“I think we’re alright, I can’t hit him, that was more my frustration,” Wade said.
Green told, “It’s all good. We knew we were under par on a really good wicket and we’re both fierce competitors on the field and don’t want to give a look-in — trying to create something out of nothing.”
Further Green added, “Nothing was said, both of us play the game competitively on the field and we have a lot of passion for our team and it’s coming into crunch end of this tournament so there’s a lot of feeling when I run out for the Thunder and I’m sure Wadey’s the same for any team he plays for as well.”
“For me, there’s nothing to do, there’s no issue. Honestly, if you want to keep digging, there’s nothing there. We both play with feeling on the field and I’ve got no issues with him personally and we walk away from the game. It’s off the field now,” Green mentioned.
