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.
