Sreesanth’s 7-year IPL ban ends
India fast bowler S Sreesanth was involved in spot-fixing case in 2013 and it led him to a 7-year ban by BCCI. His ban was reduced to 7 years last year.
S Sreesanth can finally breathe a sigh of relief as his seven-year ban came to an end on Sunday. Earlier, he was given a life-time ban before BCCI ombudsman DK Jain reduced it to seven years last year.
The fast bowler has been seen transforming his body and made himself even fitter than before. He has already made it clear that he intends to resume at least his domestic career at the end of the ban and his home state Kerala has promised to consider him if he manages to prove his fitness.
Sreesanth has also insisted that he wants to continue play cricket for another 5-7 years.
“I’m completely free of any charges nd anything nd now gonna represent the sport I love the most. Will give my very best to every ball I ball even (if) it’s just practice. Just have another 5 to 7 years max to give it all I’ve got nd I will give the very best to any team I play,” he said.
However, the fast bowler has to wait for a litter longer as there is no chance of domestic cricket to take place in India anytime soon due to the pandemic.
Sreesanth was banned in August 2013 along with his Rajasthan Royals teammates Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan. in the international arena, he played 27 Tests and 53 ODIs for India, taking 87 and 75 wickets respectively.
