Watch: Furious Gautam Gambhir Throws Verbal Volley At Umpire After His Controversial Dismissal
That Gautam Gambhir does not shy away from venting his anger and frustration on the field is well known. The veteran Indian batsman rarely shies away from giving someone a piece of his mind. Well, the aggressive side of Gambhir’s behaviour was recently witnessed in Delhi’s ongoing Ranji Trophy game against Himachal Pradesh.
Delhi captain Nitish Rana won the toss and elected to bat first. Gautam Gambhir, who stepped down as skipper just ahead of the season, walked out with debutant Hiten Dalal to open the innings. The national-capital based outfit was off to a solid start. Both Gambhir and Dalal were having it easy as Delhi’s innings took off.
On the other hand, Himachal skipper Prashant Chopra had no option but to introduce the spinners after the pacers’ struggled to get going. However, Dalal did not let the spinners settle down. On the other hand, Gambhir was playing the role of anchor to perfection.
But just when it looked the visitors would find it tough to break the stand, Mayank Dagar sent back Gambhir in a controversial manner.
Dagar tossed the ball on the middle stump, Gambhir came forward to defend it. However, the ball spun a fraction, did not hit the bat, kissed the pads and lobbed up to short leg. The fielder made no mistake in pouching the ball before the fielders went up in unison. The umpire, on the other hand, raised his finger immediately, much to the disbelief of Gambhir. And the World Cup-winning star did not hesitate in letting the umpire know his anger. Gambhir reacted angrily as he marched off the field.
