Sreesanth warned by BCCI over 'Slapgate' tweets

New Delhi, April 14 (ANI): The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Sunday warned fast bowler S Sreesanth for raking up the 2008 'Slapgate' issue through the social networking website Twitter.

The Kerala and Rajasthan Royals paceman was categorically informed that he would be issued a show cause notice if he repeated the activity.

It maybe recalled that Sreesanth had issued 44 tweets in a period of two hours last week in which he described off-spinner Harbhajan Singh as a backstabber. He had also said that the spinner had not slapped but elbowed him, and suggested that the whole incident was pre-planned.

The BCCI also warned Delhi cricketers Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir over their angry outburst at each other during an IPL match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore last week.

Gambhir and Kohli charged at each other following the dismissal of the latter. They were reprimanded by the match referee and now BCCI has asked them to conduct themselves properly. (ANI)
