Sreesanth can't play for any other country: BCCI

S Sreesanth launches another attack on 'private' BCCI says open to 'play for any other country'

Sreesanth was banned for spot-fixing allegations in IPL 2013, the sixth edition of the cash-rich league.

Banned Indian pacer S Sreesanth is looking around for options after the Kerala High Court restored the life ban imposed on him by the Board of Control for Cricket in India. This after a two-judge bench of the Kerala High Court recently reinstated the life ban on him for a spot-fixing incident during 2013 IPL.

"BCCI has imposed the ban, not ICC".

Sreesanth sought the court's intervention earlier this year, after which a single bench of the Kerala High Court ruled in his favour in August.

Players like Shakti Gauchan (Nepal), Jeet Raval (New Zealand), Munis Ansari (Oman), Swapnil Patil (UAE) and Krishna Chandran (UAE) started their careers in the Indian domestic circuit but went on to represent other countries.

Sreesanth, who had also contested in the Kerala Assembly elections in 2016 on a BJP ticket, also expressed disappointment at not being able to even represent his state in Ranji Trophy and other domestic competitions before lashing out at the BCCI, saying it was just a private organisation. I am already 34 years old and I can play another six years maximum.

Hitting back, Chaudhary said the ICC is very clear that any player who is banned by any full member can neither play for any other full member nor for any other association. So if not India I want to play for another country. "And not only that, BCCI is a private firm; it is only us who say that this is the Indian team, but you know BCCI is a private body after all", Sreesanth had said at an event in Dubai. "So, if I play for any other country, it probably may be the same".

The right arm fast medium pace bowler is all set to play for another nation if the BCCI doesn't lift the life ban off the former cricketer.

A miffed Sreesanth also took to Twitter to vent out his frustration over the court's recent ruling.

Sreesanth reacted to the court's decision, by tweeting "the worst decision ever".

Whatever the truth of the case be, Sreesanth has very few options ahead of him after the latest setback and any efforts to resume playing cricket with the BCCI ban still in effect is most certainly going to hit a roadblock.
