Life ban on cricketer Sreesanth set aside by Supreme Court

Vinod Rai welcomes SC order on mandatory cooling off period

He was responding to media after Supreme Court cancelled his life ban in the spot fixing case and asked BCCI to reconsider the punishment on Friday.

The Supreme Court on Friday revoked life ban on cricketer S Sreesanth and ordered the BCCI to reconsider his punishment for his alleged involvement in the spot-fixing controversy during the 2013 Indian Premier League (IPL).

The Supreme Court further said that its order should have no effect on criminal proceedings pending against S Sreesanth. The Court has asked the board to consider a fresh punishment for Sreesanth within the next three months. The Supreme Court, however, has not upheld the findings of guilt made by the disciplinary committee against Sreesanth. In its judgment, the court points out that the BCCI has refused to lift the ban despite a Delhi sessions court verdict discharging Sreesanth from a crime registered in connection with the spot-fixing in 2015. I have been keeping myself fit and practising regularly.

November 3, 2017: Sreesanth says he will approach the Supreme Court in a last-ditch effort to get the ban revoked. "So I hope they do the justice, and you all again pray for us", said Bhuvaneswari during the talk.

Sreesanth was banned from all forms of cricket by the BCCI.

In an earlier hearing, Sreesanth had told the court that he initially confessed to the Special Cell of Delhi Police about his alleged involvement in the spot-fixing scandal to escape sustained and continuous police torture. As many as 36 accused in the spot-fixing case, including Sreesanth, Chavan and Chandila, were discharged by the trial court here in July 2015. "The punishment period has already been completed as I have been banned for nearly six years", said Sreesanth. Sreesanth then moved the top court challenging the Kerala High Court order upholding the lifetime ban on him. "I am stubborn and nothing will happen", Sreesanth was quoted as saying to the bench, of Ashok Bhushan and Justice K.M. Joseph.
