WATCH VIDEO: ‘It Was Anti-Indian’, Gautam Gambhir Gives Clarification On Showing Middle-finger To Fans Chanting ‘Kohli-Kohli’

Former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir has given a clarification on his awful gesture which he showed against fans chanting Kohli’s name. In the match between India and Nepal being played at Pallekele International Stadium, Gambhir showed a middle finger to fans while making an entry to the stadium as they were chanting the star Indian batter Kohli-Kohli while he was passing by.

Now, Gambhir has given an explanation that there were some Pakistani fans who were using slogans against India. This enraged Gambhir to react in an abrupt way which is now circulating across all the social media handles.

While replying to the media about his reaction, the former KKR captain said,” Whatever the things shown on social media barely had any truth. On social media, several people post different kinds of stuff. The real truth about the video getting viral is that if you will impose Anti-India slogans and you will use the slangs such as ‘Hindustan Murdabad’ or you will talk about Kashmir then a reaction would obviously come. There were two to three people using such cheap language for India, that’s why I reacted.”

In the viral video, Gambhir was shown using middle finger when some fans started chanting the name of Virat Kohli. In reaction to this, Gautam Gambhir, the 2011 World Cup champion, turned back and made an offensive gesture, which was captured on camera.

The video depicting Gautam Gambhir making the inappropriate gesture has gone viral on multiple social media platforms. Presently, Gautam Gambhir is a part of the Star Sports commentary panel for the ongoing Asia Cup 2023, which includes matches held in Sri Lanka. It is very known that Gambhir has a longstanding rivalry with Virat Kohli and this dispute reached new heights earlier this year during the Indian Premier League.
