Kerala High Court Lifts Life Ban on S Sreesanth While Cricketer Expected to Get on Field Soon


Kerala High Court Lifts Life Ban on S Sreesanth: In a good news for S Sreesanth, who got a life ban on him with the sensational Spot Fixing issue in 2013 IPL, has no ban on him. Now, Kerala High Court has lifted the ban on him and the cricketer is showing his interest to get on to the field soon and play for Kerala in Ranji Trophy. Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has imposed a life ban on former Indian cricket team speedster S. Sreesanth.

Last year a special court in Delhi had acquitted him in the 2013 Indian Premier League spot-fixing case. After the verdict, S. Sreesanth had approached the BCCI to remove the 2013 ban but his plea was turned down. Later, he approached the Kerala High Court saying that though the court had given him a clean chit, the cricket body continued to harass him. He also pleaded that his sports career was getting ruined because of the ban.

Kerala High Court Lifts Life Ban Imposed by BCCI on S Sreesanth:

“He was acquitted in the case. Then how can the BCCI impose a ban on him? It is denial of natural justice,” the High Court observed while revoking Sreesanth’s ban. Talking to newsmen, Sreesanth (34) said his first priority was to get into the Kerala team. He said he was physically fit and hit the ground soon. “Many people supported me in thick and thin. They stood with me. I am really indebted to them and I will not let them down,” he said in Kochi.

BCCI president, C K Khanna said, “The judgement has come today. The BCCI’s legal team will study the judgement and give its observations. Obviously, their feedback will be taken and placed at an appropriate forum (general body).”

The cricketer also reacted about the verdict in social media, tweeting that, “God is great..thanks for the all the love and support.”
