SC lifts Sreesanth’s life ban, its BCCI’s call now

Speaking to PTI after a favourable verdict by the apex court on Friday a relieved Sreesanth said 'I don't know what life has in store for me after all these years'

Speaking to PTI after a favourable verdict by the apex court on Friday a relieved Sreesanth said 'I don't know what life has in store for me after all these years'

Sreesanth stated that he has been practicing cricket to remain fit. Thereafter, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) slapped the 36-year-old with a lifetime ban and ever since he has been straining hard with all his might to prove himself innocent.

The Supreme Court on Friday revoked life ban on cricketer S Sreesanth and ordered the BCCI to reconsider his punishment for his alleged involvement in the spot-fixing controversy during the 2013 Indian Premier League (IPL).

The bench passed this order on Sreesanth's plea challenging the decision of a division bench of the Kerala High Court which had restored the life ban imposed on him by the BCCI. And now when today it has been such a huge day of celebration for Sreesanth, Deepak shared a picture with him and captioned it as, "Ye Banda wapas aayega dil bol rha tha, Aur lo aa gye sreesanthnair36Om Namah shivaaye Aaj sree bhaiya k Haq me Faisla aaya h supreme court ka".

Soon after the verdict, Sreesanth spoke to the media. "It's a huge relief".

In an earlier hearing, Sreesanth had told the court that he initially confessed to the Special Cell of Delhi Police about his alleged involvement in the spot-fixing scandal to escape sustained and continuous police torture. I now really hope that BCCI too will do justice to him.

Sreesanth's lawyer had countered the arguments and had told the court that no spot-fixing took place during the IPL match and allegations levelled against the cricketer were not substantiated by evidence.

The Delhi Police had arrested Sreesanth and his two other Rajasthan Royals' teammates, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan, on the charge of spot-fixing during the IPL in May 2013.
