"Next thing you know the ball was coming back at the stumps so, having looked at the footage, I don’t think I have done anything wrong. It’s not like I have pushed him out of the way. My hands were up in the air and I just happened to be in his way. If anything, I probably saved (VVS) Laxman from being run out." he continued.
"If they had run I think he would have been run out. He’s not the quickest bloke. Words were said, I didn’t like it and that’s what ticked me off. That’s why there was a bit of confrontation," said Katich.
"I don’t regret getting in a contest out there. I know ‘Punter’ probably wasn’t happy with it all, which is fair enough because obviously captains come under scrutiny for all that, and I appreciate that, but it is one of those things that happens," said the Australia opener.
"It was all done and dusted pretty quickly. I think I was one of the first blokes to congratulate him on his 200, and at the end of the day I don’t think there was any damage done. It wasn’t like we had a physical altercation." he finished
