Indian international cricketer Gautam Gambhir has blamed Delhi coach PK Bhaskar because of creating a ‘sense of insecurity’ in the dressing room mainly for the young players. Gambhir said that he had asked coach Bhaskar’s about the selection policies at the end of a season for Delhi.
On Monday, the match was lead by Rishabh Pant, 19-year-old, beat Uttar Pradesh in their final game in Bhubaneswar. However, they failed to make the quarter-final of the Vijay Hazare Trophy.
The 35-year-old opener left-handed batsman said that coach was trying to blame on a young player for the disappoint performance of the team.
On Tuesday, Gambhir said to media The Indian Express that “Bhaskar is only trying to save his job. As a coach, has he put his hand up and said ‘even I am to blame’? Instead, he had made young players insecure. He is trying to pass the buck.”
He emphasized the folder of two players Nitish and Unmukt, who were dropped during the season. Unmukt was a captained of Delhi during the season of 2016-17, was lost for the Vijay Hazare Trophy one-day tournament after scoring low scores during T20.
Gambhir said “Unmukt Chand captained India A recently, captained Delhi when I wasn’t a part of the team. Suddenly you don’t even pick him for Delhi’s one-day side. Nitish Rana was part of the Duleep Trophy and also played in the IPL, but suddenly after a few bad games you send him back,” said Gambhir.
“How will these two cricketers feel? The youngsters in the team are insecure and being a senior player; I had to stand up for them. I wanted to tell the coach that what he was doing was not right and so I decided to do so,” Gambhir added.
He said that coach didn’t use any expletives, “There was an argument between me and Bhaskar but it is ridiculous to suggest that I used any bad language.”

“There was a difference of opinion but what is not correct is that such incidents, which happen in a dressing room, get leaked outside.”
“What happens in the dressing room must stay in the dressing room. That is how it has always been,” said Gambhir.
