S Sreesanth abused Rahul Dravid in public, reveals Paddy Upton in his book

India’s former mental conditioning coach Paddy Upton, who has been in charge of Rajasthan Royals since 2013, has thrown fresh light on the Indian Premier League (IPL)  spot-fixing scandal in his book The Barefoot Coach.

In the recently launched book, Upton has revealed about a shocking incident that took place in the Rajasthan Royals dressing room when pacer S Sreesanth had a massive outburst after being dropped from a game and went on to abuse him and Rahul Dravid  who was the captain of the Royals at that time. Sreesanth was sacked and given the direction to go back home 24 hours prior to his arrest on May 16, 2013, due to his poor behaviour.

In the book, he wrote, the reason for Sreesanth’s repeated poor behaviour, which amongst other things included blurting out in front of the team that Rahul Dravid (captain) and I (Upton) could go and f…k ourselves in response for dropping him, now made sense.”

Sreesanth along with two Rajasthan Royals players Ajit Chandila and Ankit Chavan were arrested by the Delhi Police in a spot-fixing case. The trio was banned for life by the BCCI following their arrest with the franchise also bearing the brunt getting banned for a couple of years after one of the co-owner Raj Kundra's name also popped up in the case. In 2015, the trio got discharged by a Delhi Court. The Supre Court, earlier this year, revoked the life-ban on Sreesanth.
