IND vs SA – Video: Ruturaj Gaikwad Gestures Groundsman, Twitter says ‘disrespectful’ | Cricket News


The fifth T20I between India and South Africa was canceled due to rain on Sunday in Bangalore. Only 3.3 overs were played in the match and during that time India had managed to post 28/2 with Ishan Kishan and Ruturaj Gaikwad in the hut. However, more than the cricketing action, it was an incident involving Gaikwad that caught the eye, and netizens were left furious.

The incident happened during the rain break when Gaikwad was sitting in the dugout.

A video has gone viral of a gardener trying to take a selfie with the batter. It was then that Gaikwad was seen asking the gardener to keep his distance and then looked away.

The act left Twitter unimpressed and many took to the platform to call it “disrespectful”.

In the fifth and final T20I, Gaikwad only managed to score 10 runs before returning to the clubhouse in the fourth round of heats. Lungi Ngidi fired the batter.

The right-handed hitter recorded 96 runs in five games, including 57 in the third T20I.

India next face Ireland in a two-game T20I series, starting June 26.
