After Virat Kohli Gautam Gambhir had another on-field spat with Manoj Tiwary :- Delhi ranji team captain Gautam Gambir had a verbal on field spat with the skipper of Bengal team Manoj Tiwary on 24 October 2015 during a Ranji Trophy match which was happening at Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium, Delhi.
The incident took place in the 7th over of Bengal’s 2nd innings, when Manoj Tiwary came out to bat at the fall of the second wicket, that of Parthasarathi Bhattacharjee to the left-arm spin of Manan Sharma. At that point Delhi wass trailing by 108 runs in the first innings, and were looking to bowl Bengal out a second time around for a shot at an outright win.
Manoj Tiwary came out wearing a cap, but even before he faced a delivery – probably realising a pace bowler was bowling from the other end – he called for a helmet. Delhi probably saw this as an act of wasting time by Bengal to hold on to their three first-innings lead points. There were words exchanged, which soon gave way to aggressive gestures between Gambhir, fielding at first slip, and Tiwary. Srinath had to separate the two and he calmed them down.
Well this is not the first time when Gautam Gambhir lost his temper on-field as he had a aggressive fight too with current India test captain Virat Kohli during a KKR vs RCB match of IPL 2013.
