Former Indian cricketer S Sreesanth addressed the recent on-field altercation with ex-Team India opener Gautam Gambhir during the Legends League Cricket (LLC) match between Gujarat Giants and India Capitals. In a post-match video released by Sreesanth, he shed light on the fiery exchange, stating that Gambhir had verbally abused him during the game.
The incident gained traction on social media after footage circulated showing Sreesanth visibly agitated following boundaries hit by Gambhir. Sreesanth’s intense reaction, including a notable “death stare” aimed at Gambhir, drew attention during the match.
Speaking out about the altercation, Sreesanth remarked, “Just wanted to clear the air with what happened with our Mr. fighter. He is the one who always fights with all his colleagues. For no reason whatsoever. He does not even respect his own senior players, including Viru Bhai (Virender Sehwag). That’s exactly what happened today. Without any provocation, he just kept on calling me something which was very rude which should not have been said by Mr. Gautam Gambhir.”
The video swiftly made rounds on social media platforms, sparking discussions among cricket enthusiasts. Sreesanth’s candid clarification aims to address the controversy, shedding light on the tense moments witnessed on the LLC field.
