Video: One of the most shameful incidents in Indian cricket
One of the most important factors required in a team to excel at any level is the unity between its players. A good relation and comradery between the players is very important as it ensures that a player receives support and motivation from his teammates when he is going through a bad phase. However an unfortunate incident was witnessed when two Indian players were seen involved in a heated exchange during a match.
The incident happened when India were playing against West Indies at Port of Spain in 2013 and the players involved in the ugly spat were Suresh Raina and Ravinder Jadeja. The argument began just after the fall of the ninth West Indies wicket to Jadeja’s bowling, ending a frustrating 58-run partnership between Sunil Narine and Kemar Roach. Both batsmen had been dropped earlier by Raina, off Jadeja’s bowling. After the dismissal, Jadeja walked upto Raina and the two exchanged a few words. But the argument worsened when Jadeja took a jibe at Raina about Kohli getting the captaincy over him.
Jadeja reportedly told Raina: “Because you’ve lost the captaincy, you’ve also lost interest in fielding?”
As the matter was getting out of hands, Ishant Sharma and other team mates separated the two. Raina had led the Indian team when they toured the Caribbean for an ODI series in 2011. However when regular skipper MS Dhoni suffered a hamstring pull in the first match of the tournament, Kohli took the charge of the team. Later the issue was resolved between the two.
