Gautam Gambhir calls out former legends after Saini’s stunning debut

India handed a T20I debut to the 26-year old fast bowler Navdeep Saini in the first T20I of the West Indies tour at Lauderhill, Florida. The pacer impressed with his performance in the very first match as he ended up with 3/17 from his four overs. He was named player of the match for his stunning spell and played a large role in securing the four-wicket win in the opening T20I.

Gambhir opens the war of words

Former Delhi captain, Gautam Gambhir congratulated Saini for his debut and called out former Indian legends Bishan Singh Bedi and Chetan Chauhan for trying to kill the career of the bowler. Gambhir was the captain when Saini made his first-class debut and the former Indian opener supported him wholeheartedly. He tweeted the following:

Bedi gave the following reply while speaking to PTI.

“I don’t believe that I have to stoop to conquer. I would rather not react to any comments on Twitter. I have never said a negative thing about Navdeep Saini. Also believe if someone has made it, it’s his credit not any Tom, Dick or Harry’s.”

Gambhir responded to Bedi’s reply with another tweet.

Former Delhi captain had also taken the name of Chetan Chauhan in his initial tweet. Chauhan clarified his stance in reply to Gambhir’s tweet.
