'Are you above Supreme Court'? Sreesanth slams Gautam Gambhir after altercation on field

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 08 Dec 2023, 12:11 am

Former Indian cricket team stars Gautam Gambhir and S Sreesanth engaged in a massive on-field altercation during the ongoing Legends League Cricket (LLC) tournament on Thursday.

Both cricketers indulged in a war of words on the field and Sreesanth later claimed that Gambhir called him a 'fixer' during the fight.

Following the incident, Gambhir took to social media to post an old picture of himself along with the caption - "Smile when the world is all about attention!".

While he found support from some of his old teammates, Sreesanth has replied with his view in the post's comments.

"You have exceeded the boundaries of a sportsman and a brother, and above all, you represent the people. Yet, you continue to engage in conflicts with every cricketer. What is the matter with you? All I did was smile and observe, and you labeled me a fixer? Seriously? Are you above the Supreme Court? You have no authority to speak in such a manner and say whatever you please. You even verbally abused the umpires, and yet you speak of smiling?

"You are an arrogant and utterly classless individual who lacks any form of respect for those who supported you. Until yesterday, I always held respect for you and your family. However, you used the derogatory term "fixer" not just once, but seven or eight times. You even resorted to using the F-word towards the umpires and myself, persistently trying to provoke me. Anyone who has experienced what I have endured would never forgive you. Deep down, you know that what you said and did was wrong. Im sure even God wont forgive you. You didn't even come to the field aftwr that. Come on, God is watching everything," Sreesanth commented on Gambhir's post.

LLC also stated the argument between the two players and said they would conduct an internal investigation on the violation of the code of conduct.

"The incident that has been the talk in 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 and Ethics Committee," LLC said in an official statement.

"Legends League Cricket strives to uphold the spirit of cricket and sportsmanship and will conduct an internal investigation on the violation of the code of conduct. Any misconduct that has occurred both on and off the field including on social media platforms will be dealt with strictly. The code of conduct has clearly states 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," Syed Kirmani, Head of Code of Conduct & Ethics Committee, Legends League Cricket said in an official statement.

"All players contracted in the Legends League Cricket are bound by certain terms related to misconduct and necessary action will be taken as per the codes of conduct laid down by the Code of Conduct & Ethics Committee. We are taking appropriate action against the breach of contract." Raman Raheja, CEO of Legends League Cricket said.
