Fans making a beeline for autographs and photographs outside the commentary box during the third India vs Australia Mohali Test left the legendary Sunil Gavaskar fuming after their over-enthusiastic chatter "disturbed" him while on job.
The incident happened in the afternoon today at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium here.
Taking advantage of the lax security in the AC lounge on the third floor of the stadium, some fans mobbed former Australian batsman Matthew Hayden, who like Gavaskar, was doing English commentary for the match.
The fans got autographs and photographs with Hayden.
After this, former India batsman Sanjay Manjrekar, who is also a commentator for the match, came out and had to oblige the fans' autograph requests.
The commotion outside miffed Gavaskar, who had earlier come out to attend a phone call.
"Have you come to watch a match here or what? Do you realise that this noise reaching inside is disturbing us," an angry Gavaskar said.
He told the fans to take their seats and not shout outside the commentary box.
A dozen odd Punjab police personnel, who were sitting on empty seats in the lounge, suddenly got alerted while few PCA officials also took note.
