Handshake controversy with MS Dhoni: Gautam Gambhir slams media for not verifying facts

Delhi and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) skipper Gautam Gambhir has been at the centre of a controversy off late due to a video that has been going viral. The video shows him ignoring India’s limited-overs skipper MS Dhoni for a handshake after the Delhi-Jharkhand match during the recently concluded Vijay Hazare Trophy.

The media covered it extensively, criticising Gambhir for his rude behaviour. However, it turns out that Gambhir did no wrong. The pugnacious southpaw tweeted a picture showing his handshake with Dhoni after the match. A furious Gambhir also asked the media to grow up and check their facts before blowing things out of proportion. Here are his tweets:


It has been reported in the past that Gambhir and Dhoni don’t share a good equation. Some even go to the extent of claiming Dhoni’s hand behind Gambhir’s axing the reason for their fallout. But for now, Gambhir has doused the fire by his act.
