Sreesanth has had one roller-coaster cricketing career so far. From starting off as a young and fierce fast bowler capable of rattling the best batsmen to playing a key role in India's 2011 World Cup triumph to being embroiled in spot-fixing scandal in the Indian Premier League, the 35-year-old has always been in news for one reason or the another.
But arguably the biggest talking talking point in his life was the fight with his national teammate Harbhajan Singh in the inaugural season of the IPL. Playing for Kings XI Punjab then, Sreesanth was slapped by Mumbai Indians' Harbhajan Singh after the fixture between their respective teams.
The incident courted a lot of controversy, and deeply affected Sreesanth, who was in tears and was being consoled by his teammates. Bhajji had immediately apologised for his actions, and over the years, has said a number of times he regretted what had happened.
Though, a new revelation has now been made by Sreesanth about the slap-gate incident. Inside the Big Boss house, a show in which he is presently participating, the pacer opened about the whole incident, and stated that Harbhajan had actually hit him with force, and not just slapped.
Another talking point in his cricketing career was the spot-fixing scandal. In 2013, IPL was rocked with spot-fixing charge, and Sreesanth's name popped from it, prompting BCCI to ban him from cricket for life. He was acquitted of the charge in 2015, but Delhi High Court restored the ban in 2017. The pacer then moved Supreme Court against his ban earlier this year.
