SC Sets Aside Life Ban on Sreesanth, Asks BCCI to Reconsider Punishment

S Sreesanth looked at his optimistic best after the Supreme Court relieved him

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had banned Sreesanth for life after the Delhi police found him guilty of spot-fixing in the 2013 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The court asked the cricket board to consider a fresh punishment for the former India pacer within the next three months.

Sreesanth said to the media, "It's a huge relief". Calling the ban on Sreesanth playing cricket "unfair", senior advocate Salman Khurshid, appearing for the cricketer, told the bench that "nowhere in the world, life ban has been imposed on a cricketer like this".

"I have heard about the Supreme Court order but we are yet to get the copy of the order". I have been keeping myself fit and practising regularly. I now really hope that BCCI too will do justice to him. "I am sure the BCCI will be kind to me and the decision will be in my favour", he said.

The apex court also said that its verdict will have no effect on the criminal proceedings pending against the former cricketer in the Delhi High Court, where the Delhi Police have challenged a trial court's order discharging all accused, including Sreesanth, in the IPL spot-fixing case. 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 action followed the arrest of Sreesanth and the others by Delhi Police for alleged promises made to bookmakers during the 2013 IPL.

Despite the same, the BCCI had declined to reverse its disciplinary committee order against Sreesanth, which it asserted was passed on the basis of evidence. The two-judge division bench had ruled that the BCCI ban could not be overturned or reduced.
