Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambir recently broke his silence on a video clip of him giving one-finger salute to the crowd started surfacing on social media. It took place during an Asia Cup match and the video clip went viral on Monday, September 4.

Gautam Gambhir found himself amid huge backlash from the fans when the video clip spread like fire. The video had gone viral in the middle of the Asia Cup 2023 rain-marred clash between India and Pakistan. The match was called off midway after the Indian innings due to incessant rain in Kandy.

Fans on social media shared the video and fuelled speculation about the reason behind Gambhir’s reaction. They even speculated it was due to chants of ‘Kohli! Kohli!’ because of the competitive relationship between the two cricketers.

Gautam Gambhir said his reaction was in response to a section of spectators made up of Pakistani fans chanting anti-India slogans and passing comments on Kashmir.

“Not everything you see on social media is true. It is presented out of context by people with an agenda. The biggest truth about the viral incident is that if you chant anti-India slogans and pass comments on Kashmir, you will elicit a similar reaction,” Gambhir said.

“My reaction was to a section of Pakistani fans shouting Hindustan Muradabad and passing inappropriate comments on Kashmir,” Gambhir added.
