I trust BCCI, will be back to cricket soon, says Sreesanth

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'

The bench made it clear that Sreesanth will get the opportunity of being heard by the committee on the quantum of the punishment. In the meantime, it has been learned that the Supreme Court revoked the life ban imposed on the Kerala cricketer.

Sreesanth stated that he has been practicing cricket to remain fit.

In a relief to cricketer Sreesanth, the Supreme Court has set aside the lifetime ban imposed on him by the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI), for his alleged involvement in match-fixing during the Indian Premier League in 2013. However, in two months, the High Court allowed BCCI's appeal and restored the ban. 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". "The punishment period has already been completed as I have been banned for nearly six years", said Sreesanth.

He remarked that the bookie tried to drag him into committing the mistake, but he didn't fall into the trap. Sreesanth then moved the top court challenging the Kerala High Court order upholding the lifetime ban on him.

The Delhi Police had arrested Sreesanth, along with cricketers Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan, and others on charges of spot-fixing. It should be also noted that the court rejected Sreesanth's request that he should not be punished by any means, as he was acquitted in the spot-fixing case. The BCCI, however, had refused to alter its disciplinary decision of life ban on Sreesanth even after the trial court's verdict.
