Former India teammates Gautam Gambhir and S Sreesanth were involved in a heated exchange during the Legends League Cricket (LLC) Eliminator between India Capitals and Gujarat Giants at the Lalabhai Contractor Stadium, Surat.

It all happened during the second over of the match, when the former Indian opener took on pacer Sreesanth; scoring a six and a four on successive balls. Later, tempers flared between the duo after the end of the over.

To clear the air on what happened on field, the pacer took it to Instagram where he accused Gambhir of using harsh and disrespecting words.

” Just wanted to clear the air with what happened with Mr fighter. One who always fights with all his colleagues. For no reason whatsoever. He does not even respect his senior players, including Viru bhai. That’s exactly what happened today. Without any provocation, he just kept on calling me something which was very rude which shouldn’t have been said by Mr Gautam Gambhir,” Sreesanth said.

I am not at all at fault here. I just wanted to clear the air straightaway. What Mr Gauti has done, sooner or later all of you will get to know. The words which he used and the things he said on a cricket field, live, is not acceptable. My family, my state, everybody has gone through so much. I fought that battle with all your support. Now people want to down me for no reason. He said things he shouldn’t have said. I will surely let you know what he said,” he added.

Sreesanth also raised Gambhir’s not so good relations with former India captain Virat Kohli, the 40-year-old pacer said, “What’s the point of representing people if you don’t respect your own colleagues. Even in broadcasting when he is asked about Virat, he never speaks about him. He speaks about something else. I don’t want to go further in detail. Just want to say I am very hurt and my family is hurt and my dear ones are hurt. And the way he said things…. I haven’t used a single bad word or a single abuse. He just kept on saying words which he always does.”

However, On Friday morning (Dec 7), Gambhir responded to Sreesanth’s claims with a cryptic post.
