When questioned about the incident involving Gautam Gambhir and Sreesanth, Harbhajan Singh answered with a line from a well-known Bollywood film.
Returning to the cricket field, Gautam Gambhir and Sreesanth caused a great deal of controversy with their Legends League Cricket assignment. During their on-field altercation, Gambhir is said to have called Sreesanth a “fixer.” When Sreesanth chose to level some serious accusations against his former India teammate, the incident sparked a massive social media frenzy. One of India’s best spinners, Harbhajan Singh, responded to a query regarding the event with a fairly tactful response that referenced a well-known dialogue from a Bollywood film.
“Bade baad shehro mein chhoti chhoti baatein hoti rehti hain (in big cities, small things keep happening),” Harbhajan said in a press conference organised by Legends League Cricket.
Although Harbhajan’s statement amused the press conference reporters, it also brought up memories of the infamous “slapgate” incident involving Sreesanth and him. He wasn’t wholly pleased, though, that the incident was brought up in this dispute.
“That was a historical occurrence. Let’s not discuss that. I have no qualms about admitting that I was at fault for what went wrong at the time. I’m not sure what transpired this time (between Gambhir and Sreesanth). It would be best to limit your consumption to LLC’s excellent cricket offerings this year, he suggested.
Regarding the most recent developments in the case, NDTV sources verified that Sreesanth received a notice from the commissioner of Legends League Cricket regarding his outburst on social media.
Sreesanth’s outburst on social media on the on-field incident was considered a “breach of contract,” according to the legal warning that LLC sent. It is thought that the notification stated that Sreesanth cannot be contacted again unless he takes down all of the recordings he has shared on social media. The notice further stated that Gambhir was not reported to have used any expletives on the field by the on-field umpires.
