Former India Cricketers Gautam Gambhir and S Sreesanth were in a heated argument in the Legends League Cricket eliminator game between Gujrat Giants and India Capitals. Gautam Gambhir has again got the limelight for all the wrong reasons. He is someone known for his controversial remarks and that is what happened on the field with S Sreesanth.
Apparently, after hitting Sreesanth for a four and a six on back-to-back deliveries, Gautam drew a response from the right-arm pacer. However, Sreesanth later revealed that it was Gambhir who started mocking him and he said something very rude to Sreesanth which led to an altercation. S Sreesanth condemned the remarks made by Gautam Gambhir on the field and said that Gauti is someone who does not even respect his senior players.
S Sreesanth’s wife also lashed out at Gautam Gambhir for insulting her husband on the field. As per Sreesanth, Gautam Gambhir repeatedly mocked Sreesanth in a very rude manner which started the argument. Sreesanth’s wife questioned Gambhir’s upbringing for making such a remark on the field for his former teammate.
S Sreesanth’s Wife Questions Gautam Gambhir’s Upbringing
“It is so shocking to hear from Sree that a player who has played for India with him for many years can stoop to this level. Even after so many years of retirement from active cricket. After all, upbringing matters a lot and it shows up when these kinds of behavior comes up on the ground. Shocking, truly shocking,” Sreeshant’s wife wrote.
S Sreesanth and Gautam Gambhir have played a lot of cricket together for India and they both were a part of the World Cup-winning Indian team in 2007 and 2011. Sreesanth was banned from the game after his suspicious involvement in a spot-fixing scandal in IPL while playing for Rajasthan Royals. However, he was found not guilty and the ban was lifted and now he can be seen participating in different leagues.
The whole S Sreesanth-Gautam Gambhir saga has raised a lot of questions, especially about one of India’s World Cup heroes Gautam Gambhir. Gambhir was a hero for India in both the T20 World Cup finals in 2007 where he scored a brisk 75 and the ODI World Cup final where his 97 off 122 deliveries stabilised the Indian innings after losing two early wickets of the openers.
