Kolkata Knight Riders captain Sourav Ganguly today hit back at his Rajasthan Royals counterpart Shane Warne and dismissed the Australian's claim that he had violated the spirit of the game by indulging in delaying tactics and refusing to accept the fielder's words on a 'clean catch'.

"Look who's talking," an acerbic Ganguly said after his team lost to the Warne-led side.

"If you look at his career and the incidents he got in. It will give you the answer," Ganguly said.

Warne had earlier said that he would lodge a complaint against Ganguly for resorting to time-wasting tactics during their IPL match and refusing to accept the fielder's word on a "clean catch".

"I was disappointed at the start. While batting we waited for five minutes under the hot sun and they (Knight Riders) were not anywhere to be seen," Warne fumed in the post-match press conference after the Royals beat the Knight Riders.

"When fielding, we just waited for Sourav to come out. When we were out on the field, we all stood there waiting. I don't know what he was doing. He wanted extra time," a visibly annoyed Warne said.
