New Delhi: Out of the Indian national team, Gautam Gambhir is making news for the wrong reasons. According to media reports, the Delhi skipper reportedly abused the curator at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium here after his request to keep the pitch "dry" was turned down.

Preparing for the North Zone matches of the Vijay Hazare Trophy, Gambhir reportedly wanted the pitch to remain dry and even spoke to the ground staff. This irked veteran pitch curator Venkat Sundaram. According to a report in a national daily, Sundaram alleged that Gambhir used 'abusive language' against him and that the matter has now been reported to the Delhi District Cricket Association (DDCA).

Gambhir, who has often publicly displayed his temper, however has denied the charge that he used offensive language although the 32-year-old left-hander admitted asking Sundaram to prepare a wicket that would suit the home team in the 50-over matches.
