The Kerala High Court has recently sanctioned BCCI to lift the ban imposed on Cricketer S Sreesanth. But the Board has decided that they would appeal to a larger bench of the Court.
The ban was imposed by the BCCI’s disciplinary committee, headed by present Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, for life because he faced allegations for spot – fixing, on September 13, 2013, previous to being acquitted by the Kerala high Court. He was arrested by Delhi Police in Mumbai on May 17 that year along with former Rajasthan Royals teammates Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan.
Today the former Indian Cricketer played an unsanctioned exhibition match which involved members of the Malayalam Film Industry. He unfurled the National Flag and a bouquet was presented to him before the match. The exhibition match was played at the ground where he first plied his trade and was cheered by a substantial crowd.
Sreesanth was back on the Cricket Field after four years. Even though Sreesanth looked noticeably unfit, he batted well against the amateur attack.
Despite the fact that it looks very difficult at this point of time, Sreesanth commented “I am really happy that I am back and I am beginning my return from the same ground where it all began. Now from here, I want to reach Thiruvananthapuram and from there upwards and back to the Indian team.”
Sreesanth has played in 27 Tests taking 87 wickets. He also has 75 victims from 53 One-Day Internationals and seven wickets from 10 T20 Internationals.
