2. Gautam Gambhir
Gautam Gambhir is an IPL veteran. He played the league for nearly a decade mainly representing the Kolkata Knight Riders. Gambhir was the team captain there and lead the side to 2 IPL titles.
Although Gambhir was a shrewd and a successful leader, he was also one of the most arrogant players of the league. He often lost his cool on the field and has had several spats on the field. Gambhir’s fierce on field showdown with Virat Kohli in 2012 is still fresh in our memory.
The battle was an ugly one and the umpires along with mutual Delhi teammate Rajat Bhatia had to cool things down. Even after retiring, Gambhir, in his role as a TV commentator still criticizes Virat Kohli. He has passed several arrogant statements on the India and RCB captain and once even said that Kohli was lucky to still captain RCB after so many unsuccessful seasons.
