Sreesanth’s wife writes an open letter to BCCI
Indian fast bowler, Sreesanth’s wife has written an open letter to Board for Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) to consider about the ban of the pacer.
Indian right arm fast bowler Sreesanth is currently facing a lifetime ban enforced by the Board for Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) following the match-fixing allegations during IPL 2013.
During Indian Premier League season of 2013, Sreesanth was accused of match-fixing allegations along with other two teammates from Rajasthan Royals. The controversy had put everyone into shock as Sreesanth was one of the World Cup heroes of India.
Later after investigations under the law, the fast bowler was proved free from the allegations and declared free without any cases or claims on the fast bowler. And the court allowed him to play the game as usual.
But BCCI enforced a lifetime ban on the trio immediately after the accusation. Even though Sreesanth was proved innocent in court, BCCI still continues the ban on the player which looks somewhat injustice.
Sreesanth is currently a contestant in Colors TV’s reality show Big Boss where he revealed that revealed that he thought of committing suicide after the controversy broke out in 2013. He said that he was accused of spot-fixing for a sum of Rs 10 lakh.
As the fast bowler is going through the black patches of his life now, his wife Bhuvneswari has come up with an open letter to the Board for Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) to clear the injustice made on the fast bowler.
Bhuvneshwari, in the letter, wrote that Sreesanth was delivering the over with complete passion and had a towel just to wipe his hands off like any other cricketer. He conceded 13 runs off that over because not because someone asked him to in return of money but it was a class batsman, Adam Gilchrist, batting against him.
She took to her Twitter account (unverified) to share the copy of the letter. Her post read, “Heart to Heart message for #SreeFam. A False accusation can ruin a person’s life. @sreesanth36”.
