Gautam Gambhir Reacts To Virat-Naveen Patch-Up

After the match, Gautam Gambhir and commentator Jatin Sapru had a chat over the Virat Kohli-Naveen-ul-Haq patch-up incident. Gautam Gambhir said that the crowd should have behaved in a better way after Virat Kohli-Naveen-ul-Haq’s fight. He also praised Virat Kohli for his gestures towards the crowd.

“Everyone has a right to fight for his team, fight for his performance, and win for his team. I believe whatever happened earlier should have been left there. However, the way the crowd behaved after the event, they could have behaved sensibly after the incident. Because no one from the crowd know what happened during the event. Only the players from both teams know about that. So I hope crowd will behave in a better way in future”, Gambhir said.
