After Lucknow Super Giants’ (LSG) drubbing against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in a match of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL), LSG owner Sanjiv Goenka was seen having an animated chat with captain KL Rahul.

As per sources, Goenka was expressing his anger at the side’s disappointing result. Several fans and experts were not too pleased with the sight as they slammed Goenka for lashing out at his captain in front of the cameras.

Meanwhile, India’s star pacer Mohammed Shami, who is currently nursing his injury, also came in support of his fellow teammate following the incident.

As per the veteran speedster, Goenka violated Rahul’s respect and it was a ‘shame’.

“Players have respect, and you are a respectful person, too, as you are an owner. Many people are watching you and learning from you. If these things happen in front of cameras… ye sharam ki baat hai. It’s a matter of shame,” said Shami during an interaction.

“If you have to do that, there are many different ways. You could’ve done the same thing in the dressing room or the hotel. It wasn’t necessary to do it on the field. Aise reaction dekar laal qile pe jhanda toh gaada nahi hai aapne (It isn’t as if you hoisted a flag at Red Fort by doing this),” he added.
