5 biggest controversies of the year 2023

The year 2023 gave many memorable and disappointing moments in the game of cricket. The Indian team played amazing cricket throughout the year, but the fans' hearts were broken twice in the same year. The dream of winning the World Test Championship was shattered in June, while despite playing excellent cricket in November, the World Cup trophy remained within reach.

Every cricket controversy was seen, which made a lot of headlines. Ten years later, when Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir came face to face on the middle ground, there was a lot of uproar even when Mathews was given time out. Let us tell you the five biggest controversies of the year 2023.

1. Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir Fight

In the match played between Bangalore Royal Challengers and Lucknow Super Giants in the 16th season of the Indian Premier League, Kohli first had a heated argument with Naveen Ul Haq. After this, after the match was over, Gambhir, who was playing the role of mentor of Lucknow, had a clash with Kohli. There was a heated argument between the two and the players had to intervene.

2. There was uproar when Bairstow was given out.

There was a lot of uproar when Jonny Bairstow was given out in a strange manner during the Ashes series between England and Australia. Actually, Bairstow dodged a bouncer from Cameron Green and as soon as he did so, he went out of the crease. Wicketkeeper Alex Carey made a strong appeal by hitting the ball rapidly on the stump, after which Bairstow was declared out. There was a huge uproar when Bairstow was given out like this.

3. Mathews timed out

In the match played between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in the World Cup 2023, such an incident happened on the middle ground, which had not happened on the cricket field before today. Sri Lankan batsman Angelo Mathews could not prepare to face the bowler at the crease within the stipulated time.

When Mathews came to the field, the strap of the helmet he was wearing was out. Mathews asked for a second helmet and here captain Shakib Al Hasan appealed for time out. After this, within 2 minutes, Mathews was not ready to face the bowler at the crease, so the umpire called him time out.

4. Harmanpreet played with the rules


Indian women's cricket team captain Harmanpreet Kaur also remained in the headlines in the year 2023. After being given out in the match played against Bangladesh, Harmanpreet expressed his anger on the middle field and hit the stump with his bat. Not only this, Harmanpreet also argued fiercely with the umpire and also spoke ill of Bangladesh players after the match. Harmanpreet also had to face a ban of two matches due to this behaviour.

5. Sreesanth name cropped up again
