Sreesanth, in a live Instagram session after the match, accused Gambhir of verbally abusing him without provocation. He stated that Gambhir disrespects his colleagues and seniors, including Viru Kohli. He further threatened to reveal the exact words used by Gambhir, which he deems unacceptable.

“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 which he used and the things he said on a cricket field, live, is not acceptable. My family, my state, everybody has gone through so much. I fought that battle with all your support. Now people want to down me for no reason. He said things he shouldn’t have said. I will surely let you know what he said,” Sreesanth said.

“What’s the point of representing people if you don’t respect your own colleagues?” Sreesanth questioned, pointing to Gambhir’s apparent lack of respect for Kohli.

The incident has left fans and commentators divided, with many demanding an explanation from Gambhir and questioning his actions. The details of the verbal altercation remain unknown, and only time will tell if Sreesanth reveals the exact words used by Gambhir.
