Sreesanth thanks SC for setting aside BCCI's life ban

The former fast-bowler had been banned for his involvement in spot-fixing during the Indian Premier League 2013.

Sreesanth, along with Mumbai spinner Ankit Chavan and Haryana's Ajit Chandila, were suspended for life by a BCCI disciplinary committee in 2013, a decision that the player had challenged in court. The apex court set aside the Board of Control of Cricket in India's (BCCI) disciplinary committee's order. 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. This comes after the Supreme Court, on March 1, reserved its order on a plea by the cricketer, against the Kerala High Court judgement, which had affirmed the ban imposed by the disciplinary committee, BCCI. In its judgment, a Division Bench of Chief Justice Navniti Prasad Singh notes that the court could not hold the judicial view of the life ban imposed by the cricketing body. And now when today it has been such a huge day of celebration for Sreesanth, Deepak shared a picture with him and captioned it as, "Ye Banda wapas aayega dil bol rha tha, Aur lo aa gye sreesanthnair36Om Namah shivaaye Aaj sree bhaiya k Haq me Faisla aaya h supreme court ka". "It is not just about playing for the country, but it is about getting the respect back", he tells PTI. The issue of Sreesanth's ban might be discussed on the sidelines of the meeting as well. Sreesanth then moved the top court challenging the Kerala High Court order upholding the lifetime ban on him. The apex court bench of justices Ashok Bhushan and KM Joseph, however, made it clear that its order shall have no effect on criminal proceedings pending against him.
