After pace bowler Sreesanth gave him a lengthy look during a Legends League Cricket match, former India batsman Gautam Gambhir expressed his disappointment. After Gambhir smacked him for a six and a four, Sreesanth gave him a glare.
The event happened while Gujarat Giants and India Capitals were playing in the Legends League Cricket eliminator. Playing for the India Capitals, Gambhir dominated the Gujarat Giants, hitting seven fours and one six in just thirty balls.

The former teammates Gambhir and Sreesanth were then involved in a long stare-off and the video of the incident is now going viral on social media. The video shows Sreesanth giving a long star while Gambhir also stares back.
Later, after the match, Sreesanth uploaded a video on Instagram and ranted against Gambhir.
“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 own senior players including Viru Bhai. Without any provocation, he was calling me something which was very rude,” Sreesanth said.

“What’s the point of representing people if you don’t respect your own colleagues?,” Sreesanth added.
Gambhir has been in the news for his alleged feud with Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virat Kohli. Similarly, Sreesanth known for aggressive celebration was earlier slapped by former cricketer Harbhajan Singh.
