Bengal skipper Manoj Tiwary, who was involved in an ugly on-field altercation with Gautam Gambhir in a Ranji Trophy match, claimed that the Delhi skipper had made racist remarks about former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly and Bengalis. (Gautam Gambhir And His History of On-Field Poor Behaviour)
“He made racist remarks about Sourav Ganguly and Bengalis. I spoke to Sourav Ganguly and he is very upset that his name has been dragged in the matter. We will never accept anything against Sourav Ganguly,” Tiwary said.
“Gautam Gambhir is not saying the truth. If I had done what Gambhir is saying why have I been fined 40 percent and him 70 percent,” the Bengal cricketer added. (‘Corrective Measures’ to be Taken on Gautam Gambhir And Manoj Tiwary: Anurag Thakur)
Gambhir and Tiwary had nearly came to blows on Day 3 of the Ranji Trophy match between Delhi and Bengal at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium on Saturday and umpire K Srikanth had to step in to defuse the situation.
The two players were summoned for a hearing after the day’s play by Match Referee Valmick Buch. (Gautam Gambhir Rubbishes Reports of On-Field Altercation With Manoj Tiwary)
Buch has said that detailed report has gone to BCCI and they will now decide the quantum of punishment.
“I don’t mind sledging but abusing someone’s mother is not right,” Tiwary said.
The incident happened in the eighth over when Partha Sarathi Bhattacharjee got out of Manan Sharma’s bowling and Tiwary came in to bat at No.4 wearing a cap.
