Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir were once the opening partners for Team India. But, this didn’t stop Viru Paaji from taking a jibe at former teammate Gautam Gambhir.
We all are aware that Ishant Sharma went unsold during IPL auctions and people made a lot comment over his base price.
One of those was Gautam Gambhir as well. Gambhir felt that Ishant Sharma’s base price was too high to get selected in IPL. During a media interaction, Gambhir said,
Nobody will pay Rs 2 crore for 4 overs. I am surprised to see Ishant’s base price.
Just before the start of IPL edition 10, Ishant Sharma got selected in Kings XI Punjab’s team by Virender Sehwag. When the media reminded Sehwag of Gautam Gambhir’s serious statement about Ishant Sharma, Sehwag went on and made a sarcastic comment,
Tell me one thing, who pays your Rs 12 crore for playing 60 balls then?
