Watch: N Jagadeesan Makes An Obscene Gesture Toward The Camera After Being Mankad In TNPL

The sixth season of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2022 started off with a frightening start when Baba Aparajith run out (mankad) batsman Narayan Jagadeesan, who then made an offensive gesture toward the camera.

When Aparajith decided to remove the bails, the right-handed batsman had already left his crease.

The manner of dismissal infuriated Jagadeesan, who made the vulgar gesture three times as he forced his way to the pavilion. The ICC modified the run-out “Mankad” manner of dismissal under Law 38 earlier this year. Aparajith thus disarmed Jagadeesan by the law. But the state teammate offended the wicketkeeper-batsman.

N Jagadeesan, a key player for Tamil Nadu’s cricket team, has participated in 45 T20 games, 36 List A games, and 26 first-class games. He joined the Chennai Super Kings in the 2018 Indian Premier League (IPL). The cricketer’s action may result in the state association taking measures against him.

N Jagadeesan provided a stable start to Gillies:

In the first game of the tournament, the Gillies were given a 185-point target to chase. Nellai Royal Kings posted a substantial total of 184/4 on the board thanks to unbeaten scores of 87 off 47 from Sanjay Yadav and 50 from Laxmesha Suryaprakash.

Before the wicketkeeper-batsman was run out, N Jagadeesan and skipper Kaushik Gandhi gave Gillies a steady start in the chase by putting up 35 runs for the first wicket. Following the run-out, Gillies lost S Radhakrishnan’s wicket for one. Before the latter was dismissed, Gandhi and Uthirsamay Sasidev contributed 28 runs for the third wicket. Gillies was able to tie the game despite having lost wickets frequently.
