After being discharged in the 2013 spot-fixing case, S Sreesanth’s cricket career could well see the light of the day, soon. The Kerala Cricket Association (KCA) has sent an e-mail to Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Jagmohan Dalmiya and secretary Anurag Thakur requesting them to facilitate pace bowler S Sreesanth’s return to the cricket field.
“There is a popular demand in Kerala that Sreesanth should be allowed to return to the cricket field. We cannot turn a blind eye towards that. So we have requested the BCCI to reconsider the ban imposed on Sreesanth. We are hoping for a positive reply from BCCI and we are willing to wait for their decision,” said KCA president, TC Mathew.
On Monday, two days after he was acquitted of spot-fixing charges by a trial court in Delhi, Sreesanth visited the KCA headquarters at the Jawaharlal Nehru International stadium to explore possibilities of his return to full-fledged cricket. This was Sreesanth’s first visit to the stadium in almost two years, following the life ban slapped on him by the BCCI. Sreesanth was assured of all possible help by KCA president TC Mathew, who received him warmly.
