Sreesanth and Gambhir Engage in Verbal Altercation
In Surat on December 6, a heated exchange erupted between former India pacer S Sreesanth and opener Gautam Gambhir during the Legends League Cricket eliminator. Gambhir, opening the innings for India Capitals in the T20 clash, displayed his prowess by smashing consecutive deliveries for a six and a four in the second over. In response, Sreesanth bowled a wide ball, prompting Gambhir to hit it straight to a fielder at short cover.
Known for his fiery temperament, Sreesanth attempted to provoke Gambhir and disrupt his concentration. However, Gambhir, experienced in such on-field confrontations, regained his composure and continued his batting, ultimately scoring 31 runs off 17 balls by the end of the powerplay.
The Legends League Cricket, a highly popular T20 tournament featuring retired players, includes cricketing legends like Chris Gayle, Gautam Gambhir, Irfan Pathan, and Tillakratne Dilshan in its second season. The tournament will conclude on December 9 with an exciting summit clash.
