IND Vs SA: Ruturaj Gaikwad faces backlash for ‘disrespecting’ groundsman

In some viral images, the young batter can be seen pushing away a groundsman who was trying to click a selfie with him.

Ruturaj Gaikwad’s gesture with a groundsman in the final T20I in Bengaluru between India and South Africa hasn’t gone down well with fans on social media.

Netizens are irked with the opener’s conduct with a groundsman. Images show the young batter pushing away a member of the groundstaff, who was trying to click a selfie with him during the rain delay.

Calling him out for his rude attitude, one of the Twitter users wrote, ‘Gaikwad ‘mistreating, disrespecting groundsman, worst behaviour have to teach some sense then go to international cricket’

Another user asked him to ‘learn from his senior teammates’.

‘Ruturaj showing attitude while taking a selfie with a groundsman, not anyone can treat everyone equally like Rohit Sharma,’ one user compared.

However, there were a few who came to Gaikwad’s defence, stating that Covid-19 could have been the reason why he behaved in that way.

Gaikwad, who scored only 96 runs in 5 outings against South Africa, will next be seen in the Ireland series that starts on June 26.
