WATCH: N Jagadeeshan Makes Unethical Middle-Finger Gesture After Baba Aparajith ‘Mankads’ Him
It was unexpected from a senior player like Jagadeeshan and most likely strong action will be taken against him for the unethical gesture.
New Delhi: The Tamil Nadu Premier League 2022 was off to a flier as the opening match between Chepauk Super Gilies and Nallai Royal Kings went down the wire in the super over with the former emerging as the winner in thrilling fashion at the Indian Cement Company Ground, Tirunelveli on Thursday.
But the match was marred by an obscene gesture which hampers the true spirit of the game.

During the run-chase, Chepauk’s N Jagadeeshan lost his temper on Nellai’s Baba Aparajith as the latter mankaded him, which is now a legal mode of dismissal as per the MCC Law.
Soon after his dismissal, while taking the long walk back to the pavilion, in the video it is clearly seen, Jagadeeshan looking back and sticking out his middle-finger towards Aparajith. It was unexpected from a senior player like Jagadeeshan and most likely strong action will be taken against him for the unethical gesture.
