Gautam Gambhir, the former Indian opener and Kolkata Knight Riders captain, is somebody who is aggressive on the field and does not like taking things lying down. He is a Delhi-born and like most Delhites, he speaks on the face! Not long ago, visuals of him getting into a heated argument with Virat Kohli became the talk of the town and he also got embroiled in a verbal spat with Manoj Tiwary. The stout southpaw did not even spare the arch rivals Pakistan when he gave it back to Shahid Afridi. He also sledged the Australian veteran player Shane Watson. Gautam Gambhir is off late not up to the scheme of things when we talk about the national team, but his contribution for Kolkata Knight Riders is unmatchable!
Recently, Gautam Gambhir revealed the cricketer he enjoyed sledging the most and you would be surprised to know the name. The southpaw revealed an interesting anecdote in season 2 of “Breakfast with Champions” when asked about the same. He promptly said, “Shane Warne was one”.
I never played against him in international cricket but during the IPL, I thought I did sledge him a lot. He gave it back and there was absolutely nothing wrong with it. I still remember telling him next time, he should make sure he should send the text to the right person.
Gautam Gambhir largely remains active on social media and runs his charity Gautam Gambhir foundation in the free time, helping those in need.
