He does not even respect his senior players, including Viru Bhai. That’s exactly what happened today. Without any provocation, he just kept on calling me something which was very rude which shouldn’t have been said by Mr Gautam Gambhir,”.

He further said, “I am not at all at fault here. I just wanted to clear the air straight away. What Mr Gauti has done, sooner or later all of you will get to know. The words that he used and the things he said on a cricket field, live, are not acceptable. My family, my state, and everybody has gone through so much. I fought that battle with all your support. Now people want to look down me for no reason. He said things he shouldn’t have said. I will surely let you know what he said,”.

He even went on to call him Mr. Fighter and cited examples of taking on current players like Virat Kohli, who once played with him. He further added that it’s his habit to fight with people.

“What’s the point of representing people if you don’t respect your colleagues? Even in broadcasting when he is asked about Virat, he never speaks about him. He speaks about something else. I don’t want to go further in detail. Just want to say I am very hurt my family is hurt and my dear ones are hurt. And the way he said things…. I haven’t used a single bad word or a single abuse, nothing. He just kept on saying words which he always does,” Sreesanth reiterated.
