Mumbai: Temperamental speedster S Sreesanth seems to have brought on more trouble for himself with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) seeking details about the unsavoury happenings at a Bangalore hotel.

Sreesanth was staying in the hotel while taking part in the board's camp at the National Cricket Academy.

''We have written letters to the hotel management and Sreesanth asking for details about what exactly happened there. His room has been booked by us. We would like to know what has happened after reading about the incident in the newspapers,'' said BCCI Chief Administrative Officer Prof Ratnakar Shetty here today.

According to hotel sources, Sreesanth, who was involved in 'slapgate' with India teammate Harbhajan Singh during the Indian Premier League (IPL), got into an argument with the staff of the hotel and created a 'scene' after complaining of 'too much noise' from an air conditioner in his room.

The sources alleged that the Kerala speedster lashed out at the hotel staff after they requested him to bear with them for half an hour to carry out repairs.

He wanted to change the room immediately in the early hours but was told no vacant room was available. A couple of his friends also joined him in arguing with the hotel staff, the hotel sources alleged.

Sreesanth later ''patched up'' with the hotel staff, they said.

The right-arm pacer is in Bangalore undergoing rehabilitation for his side strain sustained at the fag end of the IPL that has ruled him out of cricket for the whole of this month.
