Gambir was suspended in school for a brawl with rival cricket team
Gambhir confessed to Jatin Sapru on his YouTube show 'Over and out' that his 'perfect' badge was also taken away from him as a result of the fight with a rival cricket team when he was in high school.
Gautam Gambhir, former India batter and BJP MP was suspended for a brawl with a rival cricket team during his senior year in high school.
Gambhir confessed to Jatin Sapru on his YouTube show 'Over and out' that his 'prefect' badge was also taken away from him as a result of the fight, and he was only allowed to sit for the board exams. "I've had a lot of fights at school.
When I was in 12th grade, when every kid wanted to go to school and attend the last days, and I was also playing Ranji Trophy, I was suspended for two months. Following that, I sat for the board exams right away. My prefect badge was also taken away
"We went to Mayo College and were playing this ITSC competition when we got into a brawl with DPS," Gambhir explained.
Gambhir also recounted another event in which a shoe fighting nearly destroyed a great portrait at the 'Oman House,' which he later regretted.
The former India opener further stated that the headmaster of Oman House, who had obtained the artwork from Oman, was moved to tears after viewing the depiction.
"We also did something else that I now see was extremely inappropriate. You were full of zeal as a child. Oman House was where we were staying. The man on whose name the House was built had brought from Oman a gigantic portrait with a massive frame. We spoiled that photo by having a shoe battle with spikes at night. The headmaster of the House burst into tears,” he continued.
