- Gautam Gambhir – Manoj Tiwary (Ranji, 2015-16)
The latest incident happened during a Ranji Trophy game at the Feroz Shah Kotla when Delhi was up against Bengal, where skipper Gambhir had reportedly threatened Bengal skipper Manoj Tiwary to beat him up.
The incident happened in the 8th over when Partha Sarathi Bhattacharjee got out of Manan Sharma”s bowling and skipper Manoj Tiwary came in to bat at No. 4 wearing a cap. Tiwary first took guard and was about to take strike to Manan. But he stopped the bowler and signaled at the dressing room to bring his helmet as a pacer was operating from the other end.
Manan ticked off Manoj and he told him to lay off. All of a sudden, Gambhir, at first slip, got into the action and started abusing the Bengal skipper, who then struck back.
Manoj was then seen shouting at Gambhir, saying: “Did I tell you anything? Why did you have to come in between.”
“Shaam ko mil tujhe maroonga (Meet me in the evening, I will hit you),” Gambhir was quoted as saying.
