Legends League Officials To Take Strict Action After Gautam Gambhir And S Sreesanth Verbal Spat

After the involvement of Gautam Gambhir and S Sreesanth in a verbal fight at Lalbhai Contractor Stadium, Surat, the officials of legend league cricket made an official statement that they will be working in the favour of the game and maintain the spirit of the game both on and off the field.

Syed Kirmani, head of the code of conduct and ethics committee, said,“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 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.

He further added,”We make our stand very clear and continue to work towards sharing the game with millions of cricketing lovers across the nation and world.”

“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.” Said Mr. Raman Raheja, CEO, Legends League Cricket.

The incident happened in the second over of the game when the former Indian left-handed opener Gautam Gambhir struck Sreesanth for a six-over deep mid-wicket. On the very next ball, he came up with a splendid off-drive for a boundary quickly reaching double figures.

As events unfolded, Gautam Gambhir remained unfazed by the incident, showcasing resilience to score a crucial 51 off 30 deliveries. The India Capitals skipper adorned his innings with seven boundaries and a six, contributing significantly to the team’s placing a total of 223/7 in 20 overs.

In response, Chris Gayle put up a brilliant effort with a breathtaking 84 off 55 balls for the Gujarat Giants. However, despite his impressive innings, the team fell short by 12 runs in their chase to a mammoth total.

The second qualifier is scheduled to take place on Thursday, December 7 and the final will be played on Saturday, December 9.
