Many reaction surfaced slamming the cricketer for his gesture towards his senior as a result of which he was forced to release a press note expressing his regret.
“My deepest apologies to all of you for my inexcusable behaviour at yesterday’s match. Cricket has always been what I live for – and the sportsmanship that comes along with the sport is something I deeply respect. Which is why it is very hard for me to digest how I reacted” said Jagadeesan through his tweet.
“Passion is always key in any sport- but controlling it and channelising it the right way is more important. And that is something I failed at doing when I let my temper get the better of me. No excuses for what has been done. I will do better and be better. With Regret, Jagadeesan” he added.
