"The crowd, which was primarily made up of Pakistani supporters, shouted anti-Indian chants and made remarks about Kashmir. As an Indian, I find it intolerable when people disparage my nation, which is why I reacted in this way. You shouldn't always believe everything you see on social media, Gambhir told reporters outside the stadium.

Gambhir is a member of the commentary team for the competition.
