The Legends League Cricket (LLC) will conduct an 'internal inquiry' after S Sreesanth claimed on Thursday that ex-India teammate Gautam Gambhir called him a 'fixer' during a match and that any evidence of misbehaviour found against the latter will be 'dealt with rigorously'.

The two World Cup-winning players got into a heated altercation during an Eliminator match between LLC clubs 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 one of three Rajasthan Royals players banned due to their alleged involvement in the 2013 IPL spot-fixing incident. The Supreme Court overturned his judgement in 2019, prompting the BCCI to lower Sreesanth's ban to seven years, which

concluded in September 2020.

"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," Kirmani said in a statement on Thursday.

"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. We make our stand very clear and continue to work towards sharing the game with millions of cricketing lovers across the nation and world," the former India wicket-keeping great added.

Sreesanth, for his part, claimed he did not utter a single harsh word and was perplexed as to what prompted Gambhir's reported outburst. "From my side, I didn't use any bad word. Please guys support the real truth. He has been doing it with a lot of people. I have no idea why he started it, it was the end of the over.
