Former India player Sunil Gavaskar lost his cool at Wriddhiman Saha for his reckless shot selection, which led to his dismissal for a duck off 6 balls in the IPL 2023 match against Delhi Capitals at the Narendra Modi stadium. Gavaskar slammed Saha, who kept poking at the deliveries bowled outside the off stump.
He edged Khaleel Ahmed’s ball, which wicket-keeper Phil Salt caught.
Gujarat Titans were restricted to 125 and lost the game by 5 runs while chasing 131.
Speaking to Star Sports, Sunil Gavaskar called Wriddhimsan Saha’s shot foolish.
“All you experience matters for nothing when you play a shot like that. You can go and practice that shot in the dugout,” he said.
“The word fullish can be said differently for him,” he added.
Batters let GT down, with Hardik Pandya hitting a slow fifty.
Shami finished 4 for 11 as he took the Purple Cap, taking his tally to 17 wickets in the 16th season.
