By admin Dec8,2023

The Legends League Cricket will conduct an “internal investigation” after former pacer S Sreesanth on Thursday alleged that ex-India teammate Gautam Gambhir had called him a “fixer” during a match, and if evidence of misconduct is found against any player it would be “dealt with strictly”.

The two World Cup-winning players were involved in a heated exchange during an Eliminator match between LLC teams Indian Capitals and Gujarat Giants.

The umpires had to intervene and separate the two players.

“He kept on calling me ‘fixer fixer, you are a fixer, **** off you fixer’ on live television on centre wicket,” Sreesanth said while going live from his Instagram handle.

“I just said ‘what are you saying’, I kept laughing in a sarcastic way. He spoke to the umpires in the same language when they tried to control him,” he added.

Sreesanth was handed a life ban by the BCCI’s disciplinary committee due to his alleged involvement in the IPL 2013 spot fixing scandal.


However, the ban was reduced to seven years in 2019 by the Supreme court of India.

“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,” said Syed Kirmani, head of code of conduct & ethics committee, LLC in a statement on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Gautam Gambhir wrote on X, “Smile when the world is all about attention!”

“The code of conduct has clearly stated 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.
