The fifth T20I between India and South Africa was called off due to rain on Sunday in Bengaluru. Only 3.3 overs were put into the game and in that time, India managed to post 28/2 with both Ishan Kishan and Ruturaj Gaikwad in the hut. However, more than cricket practice, it was an incident involving Gaikwad that caught the spotlight, and the netizens were left out.
The incident took place during the rainy season when Gaikwad was sitting in a field.
A viral video of a landlord trying to take a selfie with the batter. It was then that Gaikwad was found asking the landlord to maintain the distance and then he looked the other way.
Very bad and careless by Ruturaj Gaikwad. It is sad to see that these landlords are treated like this pic.twitter.com/Qj6YoXIPUa

This practice did not impress Twitter and many went to the altar to call it “indifference”.

People defending rituraj gaikwad should understand that homeowners are also COVID protected.
Clearly ruturaj is not appropriate to play at the highest level. Shame.

Ruturaj Gaikwad disrespecting Groundsman. This pride and attitude is very bad. First learn to respect Man.
There is no bio bubble in this series.

The worst case scenario Ruturaj Gaikwad. They are heroes who do not sing and treating them like this is very disrespectful. https://t.co/rxaNZoYuWe

Match delay due to rain
Why is heck Ruturaj Gaikwad behaving like this with a land worker? Just for a selfie you are proud of him. This kind of behavior is very acceptable in the game of a gentleman. pic.twitter.com/A1sjqnMQu7
