Legends League Cricket: The fight between two former Indian cricketers in the Legends League Cricket (LLC) being played in India has been in the headlines since last night. This dispute between Gautam Gambhir and Sreesanth has attracted everyone’s attention. From cricket fans to experts, everyone is surprised and saddened by the on-field behavior of these two members of the T20 World Cup 2007 winning team. Amidst all this, now LLC has also expressed disappointment over this controversy. Like the league, it has also been said that appropriate action will be taken in this matter.
LLC’s Code of Conduct and Ethics Committee Chief Syed Kirmani and CEO Raman Raheja have issued a statement on this controversy. In this official statement, it has been said that the incident which is being discussed in the entire cricket world during the LLC match, is a violation of the code of conduct of LLC and necessary action will be taken against all those who violate these rules of LLC.
What did the Chief of LLC Code of Conduct and Ethics Committee say?
Former cricketer Syed Kirmani has said, LLC tries to maintain the spirit of sportsmanship along with cricket. That is why he will conduct an internal investigation on violation of the code of conduct. Any misconduct on and off the field will be dealt with strictly. Activities done on social media will also be included in its scope. The rules of the LLC clearly state that every possible action will be taken against players who bring disrepute to the league, the spirit of the game and the team they represent.
What did the LLC CEO say?
Raman Raheja has said in his statement, all the players contracted with LLC are bound by the conditions. If something goes wrong, prescribed action is bound to be taken. We will take appropriate action against breach of contract. Unfortunately, the pictures and videos of this incident going viral on social media are creating negative headlines, diverting attention from the exciting season of this tournament. Our effort is to focus on the league itself. That is why the concerned committee will take action in this matter after complete investigation.
