A day after the ghost of the 2008 ‘Slapgate’ tumbled out, controversial fast bowler S. Sreesanth on Saturday sought divine blessings by visiting the Sai Baba shrine at Shirdi in Maharashtra.
Sreesanth, on Friday, said that all the ‘Slapgate’ claims were far from truth, as he was never slapped by his then Indian teammate Harbhajan Singh.
Instead, Sreesanth said that he was elbowed by the senior off-spinner.
Sreesanth said he wanted to move on and would not speak more on the issue. “I don’t want to say anything more as I am playing in the IPL. I just shared my feelings and came here to do the same. I want to do well in the matches ahead. I want to work hard to make a comeback to the Indian side for the South Africa tour,” he told presspersons outside the shrine.
Before speaking to the media, Sreesanth tweeted about his Shirdi visit, saying he had a great darshan and it was all god’s grace.
