Former India spinner Bishan Singh Bedi has criticised young sensation, Shubman Gill, after the right-handed batsman argued with the on-field umpire during a Ranji Trophy match between Punjab and Delhi in Mohali.
Gill was given caught behind by the on-field umpires but the India ‘A’ skipper argued and the decision was eventually overturned after a halt of almost ten minutes.
“This kind of rowdy behaviour by anyone is unpardonable, least of all by proposed Captain of India A,” Bedi wrote on his Twitter handle.
@vijaylokapally & @BCCI-this kind o rowdy behaviour by anyone is unpardonable-least o all by proposed Capt o India A-no matter how talented no player was ever bigger than the game-example needs setting-let a more balanced person lead India A before the Referee’s intimidated too!— Bishan Bedi (@BishanBedi) January 4, 2020
If reports are to believed, Gill also abused the umpires after the decision. He eventually scored 23 before getting out to Simarjeet Singh.
