Former England skipper Nasser Hussain blasted Ben Duckett for his strange remarks towards India’s Yashasvi Jaiswal.

The left-handed opener became the first Indian to score two double-hundreds against England in Tests.

Jaiswal’s performance paved the way for India to win by 434 runs, taking a 2-1 lead in the five-match series.

The 22-year-old became the first-ever player to hit 20 sixes in a Test series worldwide with 22 overhead boundaries.

However, Duckett took credit for Jaiswal’s success in attacking batting.

“When you see players from the opposition playing like that, it almost feels like we should take some credit that they’re playing differently than how other people play Test cricket,” Duckett told the media during a press conference.

“We saw it a bit in the summer, and it’s quite exciting to see other players and other teams are also playing that aggressive style of cricket. He looks like a superstar in the making. Unfortunately, he’s in some very good form at the moment. He’s due a couple of low ones,” Duckett said.

However, Hussain did not appreciate Duckett’s comments, saying Jaiswal learned “from his upbringing and the IPL.”

“The comment on Jaiswal that he has learned from us. I am going to touch on that. He has not learned from you, he has learned from his upbringing and all the hard yards he had to put in while growing up, he has learned from the IPL. If anything, I would look at him and learn from him,” Hussain said.

“So, whatever they are saying in public and in that dressing room, I hope they are going back into their room with a little bit of self-introspection. I can look at that lad and learn from him. Otherwise, it becomes a cult, doesn’t it? At times, Bazball has been described as a cult where you cannot criticize either within or externally. Even in this regime, there is room for learning and improving.”
