Former Indian cricketers S Sreesanth and Gautam Gambhir were involved in a heated argument during the Legends Cricket League 2023 eliminator between Gujarat Giants and India Capitals in Surat.
Things got a bit fiery between the mercurial S Sreesanth and Gautam Gambhir during the match.
Gambhir, opening the innings for India Capitals in the T20 clash, smashed Gujarat Giants seamer Sreesanth for a six and a four from back-to-back deliveries in the second over of the match.
Sreesanth, not one to back down from a fight, immediately said a few words to sledge Gambhir and try to get under the retired opener's skin.
In another viral video, S Sreesanth can be seen having a verbal argument with Gautam Gambhir. He was approaching the former India captain when Parthiv Patel and on-field umpire immediately intervened between two players to make them calm down.
Meanwhile, Gautam Gambhir scored 51 off 30 balls to help India Capitals post a solid total of 223/7 in 20 overs in the Eliminator game of the Legends Cricket League 2023. S Sreesanth scalped while conceding 35 runs at an economy rate of 11.70 in three overs. India Capitals won the eliminator by 12 runs after restricting Gujarat Giants 211/7 in 20 overs.
