Gabriel's remark was not audible to television viewers but according to Sky Sports the England captain was heard replying to the bowler: "Don't use it as an insult. I know there are people who think the opposite and think it is good for the game but sometimes in the heat of battle things are said, when guys given a bit of time to sit down and think about it would give themselves a bit of a kick up the backside". Root said at the close that things said on the field "should stay on the field", but nevertheless received praise for his stance, including from United Kingdom equality charity Stonewall.

"I don't want anything said in the middle to ruin what's been a good Test series for him and his team", Root added. Davies said on her Twitter account.
