Gambhir, Tiwary nearly exchange blows during the Ranji Trophy Match
There were ugly scenes between Gambhir and Tiwary during the ranji trophy match between Delhi and Bengal, here on Saturday.
Incident happened in 7th over when Partha Sarathi got out of Manan Sharma's bowling and Manoj Tiwary came in to bat at No. 4 wearing a cap.
Tiwary first took guard and was about to take strike. But Tiwary stopped the bowler and signalled at the dressing room to bring the helmet as a pacer was operating from the other end.Delhi players felt that it was a deliberate time wasting tactic.
Suddenly Gambhir came into the action and started abusing tiwary. Gambhir said, ‘Meet me in the evening, I will hit you’. And Tiwary replayed, ‘Why wait till evening, let’s go out and settle it now’.
Umpire Srinath came between the two players as Gambhir moved towards Manoj Tiwary to hit him. The Bengal skipper Tiwary too came charging at Gambhir.
Both the players summoned by the match referee Valmick Buch.
