TNPL 2022: N Jagdeeshan, star batsman from Chepauk Super Gillies has apologized for his obscene gesture after being run-out backing up at the non-striker’s end during the opening match of Tamil Nadu Premier League 2022 against Nellai Royal Kings on Thursday.
Chasing a steep total of 185 runs, Chepauk Super Gillies rode on to a solid start by opening batsman Jagdeeshan who scored 25 runs of 15 balls. Super Gillies were 35 for 0 in 3.3 overs where the unfortunate incident took place.
N Jagdeeshan was at the non-striker’s end and Baba Aparjith was set to bowl a fourth delivery of the fourth over. In the middle of his bowling action, Baba stopped and dislodged the bails to find Jagdeeshan out of the crease.
Jagdeeshan, who looked in scintillating touch did not look pleased with the mode of his dismissal. Anguished by the actions of Baba Aparjith, Jagdeeshan got furious and showed his middle finger twice on his way back to the pavilion.
On Friday, Jagdeeshan took to Twitter and regretted his gesture through a post. While seeking an apology from Aparjith and his fans, Jagdeeshan mentioned that his behavior is inexcusable. He also stated that cricket is his life and sportsmanship comes along with the sport. Jagdeeshan strongly respects the game and is facing difficulty to digest his disgusting behavior.
Jagdeeshan further asserted that there are no excuses for his intolerant behavior and that he will strive hard and do better in his career. N Jagdeeshan was given out as per the 41.16.1 Law of the MCC. According to the law, the bowler has the right to dislodge the bails and claim a wicket if the batsman stands over the popping crease before he bowls a legitimate delivery. The Law is also updated in Section 41 (Unfair Play) and Law 31 (Run Out). This means the dismissal of Jagdeeshan was legitimate and legal.
The heroics of Jagdeeshan helped Chepauk Super Gillies to tie the match. The side however lost in the Super over that was conducted later.
