Gambhir banned for one Test

India opener Gautam Gambhir has been banned for One Test for not conducting play "within the spirit of the game as well as within the laws of cricket". Gambhir was involved in verbal clash with Shane Watson, Australian bowler, he elbowed him in the process.

Gambhir pleaded guilty to the Level 2 offence, which might make him miss the 4th and final test against Australia in Nagpur.

I think it is harsh to ban Gautam Gambhir only, why didn't the match referee ban Shane Watson, Michael Clark, Bret Lee and Simon Katich, who were on regular occassions trying to distract Gautam Gambhir by using abusive language and giving him a long glare and coming in way while taking runs. If Gambhir elbowed Watson, I think he deserved it for not playing farely enough.

I would like your comments on this, do leave a comment.
