The life ban imposed by the Board of Control for Cricket in India on former Team India pacer S. Sreesanth will stay. A division bench of the Kerala High Court in Kochi on Tuesday said Sreesanth will have to stay away from all cricket activity conducted by the BCCI. (CRICKET NEWS)
S. Sreesanth was slapped a life ban by the BCCI in 2015 after the Kerala pacer was charged with corruption during the 2013 Indian Premier League. Sreesanth was charged with spot-fixing while playing for Rajasthan Royals.
In August this year, the Kerala High Court revoked the BCCI’s decision to impose a life ban on S. Sreesanth. Last year a special court in Delhi had acquitted him in the 2013 IPL spot-fixing case. The Delhi Police continues to pursue the matter.
Tuesday’s order will come as a big blow to the 34-year-old who was planning to play Ranji Trophy for Kerala.
