Ugly Spat: Gambhir Goes After Sreesanth

SURAT, (IANS) – The Legends League Cricket (LLC) will conduct an internal investigation on the violation of the code of conduct in the incident involving former India teammates Gautam Gambhir and S. Sreesanth.

The incident that has been the talk of the cricketing world violates the code of conduct and necessary action will be taken against all that have violated the very clear rules stated by the league’s Code of Conduct & Ethics Committee, LLC)said in a statement on December 7.

Gambhir and Sreesanth got into a furious disagreement during the LLC Season 2 Eliminator match between India Capitals and Gujarat Giants at the Lalbhai Contractor Stadium, and the umpires had to step in to keep things civil.

Sreesanth chastised Gambhir for provoking him needlessly after the Capitals won by a score of 12 runs. Sreesanth attacked him for showing no regard for his coworkers and expressed how offended he was by Gambhir’s remarks.

“Just wanted to clear some air on what happened with Mr. Fighter, who always fights with all his colleagues for no reason whatsoever. He doesn’t even respect his own senior players, including Viru bhai and a lot of people. That’s exactly what happened today. Without any provocation, he just kept on calling me, something which is very rude and something which should not have been said by Mr. Gautam Gambhir,” Sreesanth said after the match.

“So, I just want to tell you all that I am not at fault. I just wanted to clear the air straight away. Sooner or later, you’ll get to know what Gauti has done. The words which he used and the things he said on a cricket field live are not acceptable,” he added.

Sreesanth went live on Instagram, and accused Gambhir of using the ‘F’ word. The Kerala pacer also said that Gambhir called him a ‘fixer’, referring to the 2013 Indian Premier League spot-fixing scandal.

“The code of conduct has clearly stated that necessary action will be taken against players that bring disrepute to the league, the spirit of the game and the teams that they are representing. We make our stand very clear and continue to work towards sharing the game with millions of cricketing lovers across the nation and world.” said Syed Kirmani, Head of Code of Conduct & Ethics Committee, Legends League Cricket.

Gambhir posted an enigmatic note on social media, perhaps downplaying the issue sparked by Sreesanth. “Smile when the world is all about attention,” Gambhir said.
