Gautam Gambhir Sledging Fights With Shane Watson & Katich Video | India vs Australia 3rd Delhi Test | Cricket


Watch the elbow incident between Gautam Gambhir and Shane Watson apart from other sledging fights Gambhir had with Simon Katich and others enroute to 149 n.o. on the 1st day of the 3rd test match between India vs Australia at Delhi. As you’ll see in the video, apart from the usual cursing there was even a hard elbow poke for Shane Watson and similar threats towards Simon Katich after Katich appeared to grab Gambhir during a quick/run/run-out situation. Whether it was immediate victories, like a cool boundary following an incident, or the big picture victory (149 n.o), it was Gambhir who came out of this better off. As usual, after the end of day’s play, most of the Australian players congratulated Gautam, which can be a confusing sight for the average Indian consciousness.

Gambhir has been around several such incidents – during the early part of his international career he had several bouts with Andre Nel and later with Shahid Afridi. Today, it was more the Aussies who came after him from the outset – Brett Lee, Mitchell Johnson (both – nothing serious), Shane Watson – a few words here and there followed by a raised arm as Gambhir took a single to which Gautham responded with a hard elbow in Watson’s sculpted abdomen. But the boiling moment occurred with Simon Katich when Katich who’s so boring when he bats attempted the opposite while bowling:– with Laxman bounding down for a single, Katich held on to Gambhir for a few moments longer than normal when a bowler gets in the way of the non-striker. Billy Bowden had to step in (literally) between the two and it went on and on and so on. Good stuff for sore eyes though.

Highlights from Day 1 here.
