Looking at me and Virat Kohli you can say Delhi players abuse more: Gautam Gambhir

first_imgKolkata Knight Riders captain Gautam Gambhir is known for his intensity and wears his heart on his sleeve ever time he walks on to the cricket field. Even in his post-match interviews Gambhir is usually very serious and very rarely do we see a smile on his face even when his team is winning matches on a regular basis. (POINTS TABLE | SCORECARD)But the KKR management finally managed to get Gambhir to do a candid interview for their official channel on social media where the skipper spoke his heart out about how players from Delhi abuse more on the field and why it is important for him to be as intense as he is on the field. (Gambhir credits bowling attack after KKR trample RCB)”It just comes naturally (abusing on the field). It’s just the culture (in Delhi). That is the only thing I can say because that’s the way you’ve been brought up and maybe the competitive edge as well. Being from Delhi and being so competitive normally that’s how the culture is,” Gambhir told Knight Club host Jatin Sapru.

There is nothing wrong in it unless you don’t take it personally. If you keep it on the field that’s absolutely fine. Till the time you don’t take it personal and off the field that is fine. But yes, somewhere down the line you cannot cross the line. A lot of people are watching as well so you have to be a little more sensible about it,” he added.

You know when you’ve abused on certain occasions. Obviously it’s very embarassing. But as I said, you still have to control your emotions and at the same time the whole world is watching, you could be a role model for so many other people so you don’t want people to follow on those footsteps,” Gambhir concluded.Gambhir on Sunday led his team to a thrilling 82-run victory over Kohli’s RCB at the Eden Gardens.
