Navdeep Saini is an Indian first, tweets Gambhir attacking Bedi, Chauhan

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

He had risked his captaincy, fought with the establishment to get into the team and no wonder a vindicated launched a scathing attack on former skippers Bedi and opener after the speedster made it to India's Test team.

Those who were witness to Gambhir's infamous altercation with Chauhan at the Roshanara ground (December, 2013) will never forget how adamant he was to get the young pacer into the team.

Gambhir's contention was that Saini is an prospect and it's his duty as a to help him.

Bedi, who has been Gambhir's on and off the field, had then questioned how an outsider could get into the team.

Gambhir, who is currently holidaying in with his family, took to twitter to remind Bedi and Chauhan as to how a section of DDCA officials were distributing pamphlets and were ready to wear black armbands on protest of Saini's inclusion.

My condolences' to few DDCA members, @BishanBedi @ChetanChauhanCr on selection of outsider' to squad. Am told black armbands are available in too for INR 225 per roll!!! Sir, just remember Navdeep is an Indian first then comes his domicile @BCCI, Gambhir tweeted a day after Saini's maiden call-up.

Bedi and Gambhir have never shared a great rapport and the legendary left-arm spinner was very critical about Gambhir's alleged conduct with KP Bhaskar after their public fall-out at the end of the season.
