England suffered a big setback before the Test series, this player was injured again. He revealed why Matthew Hayden did not even talk to him for 2 to 3 years. Robin Uthappa said that from 2007 onwards, whenever there was a face-to-face meeting between India and Australia, there was a lot of sledding between the two. The battle of sledding between the teams began with the semi-finals of the 2007 T20 World Cup.

Kiwi Team Southappa, who arrived in England for the test championship final and test series, said he targeted Andrew Symonds, Mitchell Johnson, and Matthew Hayden. It was most difficult for him to face Hayden as Hayden was inspired by him as a man and batsman. Uthappa told that he remembered very well that Hayden was taunting him when he was batting during that match.
So he decided to do it too and when Hayden came to bat, he also did a lot of sledding. Uthappa also said that, in this match, he kept on attacking Hayden. All this was so sharp that Hayden did not even talk to him for 2 to 3 years and this hurt him a lot. There have been many cases of sledding between players from India and Australia.
