IPL 2016: Did Gautam Gambhir lose his temper against umpire?

The incident occurred during the 19th over, Virat Kohli played a shot towards point region and the ball went straight into Gambhir's hands.

Television cameras showed Gambhir throwing the ball towards non-striker's end - the direction in which Virat Kohli was running - in a fit of rage. This unnecessary aggression from Gambhir perhaps irked the umpire who snatched the ball from bowler, Andre Russel's hands.

A furious Gambhir then sped towards the umpire which resulted in an argument between the two. The game progressed after Gambhir was sent back to his position.
