The West Zone medium-pace bowler Chintan Gaja has shared a picture with the Central Zone all-rounder Venkatesh Iyer after the ugly incident in the Duleep Trophy fixture between the teams on Friday, 16 September.

During the Duleep Trophy game between the West Zone and the Central Zone on Friday, 16 September at the SNR College Cricket Ground, an ugly incident took place.

Venkatesh Iyer, who is representing Central Zone in the inter-zonal competition, went off to the mark with a six off bowler Chintan Gaja. Next ball, Iyer played it right back to the bowler and Gaja picked the ball and threw it back at Iyer in anger, hitting the batter on the head and Iyer immediately collapsed.

When asked whether he will be able to play the second innings. He stated:

“I don’t know, I have been kept under 24-hour observation. I will have to see how things go.”
