This incident created a lot of buzz on the social media as watching bats getting broken into two is always a very funny sight in the game of cricket. Gambhir charged forward to attack the ball and as the ball met the bat, the willow broke into two pieces. Gambhir was left with holding the bat handle with little more piece of wood. The entire stadium erupted with laughter and even the commentators couldn’t stop laughing.
Gautam Gambhir, who is a very intense character on the field, was left with a baffled look on his face when his bat broke in two. However, Gambhir played a very crucial knock for his team as KKR won the match by 7 wickets.
