Former India batter Gautam Gambhir has quipped during a fun Q & A interaction that S Sreesanth was the one bowler he was afraid of facing.

Incidentally, both Gambhir and Sreesanth are part of the Legends League Cricket (LLC) 2023. They were involved in a verbal duel during the Eliminator clash between India Capitals and Gujarat Giants at the Lalabhai Contractor Stadium in Surat on Wednesday, December 6.

In the second over of the match, Gambhir slammed Sreesanth for a six over deep mid-wicket and then whacked the next delivery past the bowler for four. After the next delivery was a dot, the bowler had something to say to the batter, who was not too pleased. The video of the incident has since gone viral on social media.

Meanwhile, in a light-hearted Q & A session on Sportskeeda, termed “Wrong Answers Only”, Gambhir named Sreesanth as the one bowler he was afraid of facing. As the name suggests, Gambhir had to give wrong answers to all the queries.
