London: Former England skipper Nasser Hussain has said that his controversial "donkey" remark against a few Indian cricketers during their one-off Twenty20 match against England was not intended to attack any player personally.
"I don't want to say too much about this because I have found the reaction amazing. I just can't believe the fuss over what is a bit of cricket slang. It's a term I used all the time when I was a captain. Nothing personal was intended," Hussain said.
The controversial remark caused a furore in India, with several former Indian cricketers criticising Hussain and the BCCI taking up the matter with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).
