The seven-year ban on the Indian cricket team’s fast bowler S Sreesanth has now ended. The ban was imposed by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) after his alleged involvement in the spot-fixing scandal that rocked the 2013 Indian Premier League (IPL).
In 2015, a special court in Delhi acquitted him of all charges. Now, his goal is to return to the Indian team and for this, he wants to play club cricket first.
Sreesanth expressed his intention to play the matches:
After the ban was lifted, he announced that he is now free and wanted to return to the field soon. Sreesanth wants to return to the field in any situation.
He recently expressed his intention to play the matches. He said, “Call me and I will come and play cricket anywhere”.
