IND vs SA – Video: Ruturaj Gaikwad groundsman, says Twitter “disgraceful” | cricket news

The fifth T20 match between India and South Africa was called off due to rain in Bengaluru on Sunday. Only 3.3 overs were bowled in the match and in that period, India managed to post 28/2 with both Ishan Kishan and Ruturaj Gaikwad. However, more than the cricketing action, it was an incident involving Gaikwad that made headlines, and left netizens furious.

The incident took place during the rain break when Gaikwad was sitting in the dugout.

A video of the groundsman trying to take a selfie with the batsman has gone viral. Just then Gaikwad was seen asking the groundsman to keep his distance and then he looked the other way.

The act did not impress Twitter and many took to the platform to call it “outrageous”.

In the fifth and final T20I, Gaikwad managed just 10 runs in the fourth over of the innings before going back to the pavilion. Lungi Ngidi dismisses the batsman.

In the entire series, Gaikwad scored just one fifty and it came during the third T20I in Visakhapatnam.


The right-handed batsman scored 96 runs in five matches, with 57 coming in the third T20I.

India’s next match will be against Ireland in the two-match T20I series starting June 26.
