New Delhi: Gautam Gambhir is the mentor of Lucknow Super Giants and also world famous for his aggression. Now in such a situation it is understandable to show aggression of the team player. But, if aggression goes beyond limits, then there is a punishment for it in cricket. Gautam Gambhir has also suffered this punishment in IPL 2023. However, Amit Mishra, who played in his team, was only reprimanded.
Amit Mishra’s aggression was seen in the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, for which he was reprimanded. In this match, Heinrich Klaasen of Sunrisers Hyderabad could not escape the penalty. However, he was in the dock not for his aggression but for questioning the umpire’s decision.
