Gautam Gambhir, the former Indian cricketer, has expressed his frustration over the constant replays of his infamous on-field fight with Pakistani all-rounder Shahid Afridi during the recent India vs Pakistan cricket clash.
Speaking about the overuse of the footage, Gambhir questioned, "Why do they always show my fight with Shahid Afridi?" The former left-handed batsman was visibly annoyed by the constant references to the incident, which occurred during a 2007 ODI match.
He further lashed out at the media for focusing on past controversies instead of appreciating the current players and the exciting match itself. He stated, "It's time to move on. We have such talented players on both sides, and the focus should be on their performance and the game itself."
Gambhir's outburst highlights the media's tendency to sensationalize past events and disregard the present. This incident raises questions about responsible journalism and the importance of focusing on positive aspects of the sport.
