Former India teammates Gautam Gambhir and S Sreesanth were involved in a heated stare-off during the Legends League clash on Wednesday (December 6). Gautam Gambhir is leading India Capitals in the competition while S Sreesanth is plying his trade for Gujarat Giants.

Both former India stars were known for their aggressive attitude during their playing days, as neither of them backed down from any challenge. It appears that not much has changed even after retirement from international cricket, especially in terms of their attitude. A glimpse of the same was witnessed when India Capitals locked horns against Gujarat Giants in the Eliminator of the ongoing Legends League Cricket.

Gautam Gambhir led his team from the very front and scored a quickfire fifty to lay the foundation for a big total. The left-handed batsman was the top-scorer for his team as he smashed 51 off just 30 balls with the help of 7 fours and a six. Thanks to their captain’s brilliant knock, the Capitals piled up a big total of 223 for 7 in the allotted 20 overs.

Gautam Gambhir and S Sreesanth engage in a heated stare-off:

One of the most notable moments of the game came when S Sreesanth was bowling to Gautam Gambhir. The former India opener took his former teammate to the cleaners, hitting the pacer for a six and a four. It was followed by a long stare from S Sreesanth and Gautam Gambhir did not like it at all. He even looked confused by his former teammate’s behavior and did not shy away from making his feelings clear.


Talking about the game, India Capitals won the game by 12 runs. After they scored 223 runs, the Giants also came up with a good batting effort. Opener Chris Gayle played a whirlwind knock of 84 runs from just 55 balls with the help of 9 fours and 4 sixes. Former Ireland star Kevin O’Brien also scored a quickfire fifty but the Giants eventually finished on 211 for 7.
