SC lifts lifetime ban on cricketer Sreeesanth

Former Indian cricketer S.Sreesanth was given a “huge lifeline” on 15.3.2019, Friday by the Supreme court which asked the BCCI to reconsider its previous decision of a lifetime ban on the cricketer after the 2013 IPL spot-fixing scandal.

The decision to reconsider the decision and allow the former player a hearing was given by Justice Ashok Bhushan and Justice K.M. Joseph. After setting aside the lifetime ban the judges asked the BCCI’s disciplinary committee to decide the quantum of punishment in the next 3 months.

The cricketer’s reaction to the media was” It was a huge fight and I am happy that the Supreme court has given me a lifeline by lifting the life ban.” After a 6 year hiatus the former cricketer sounded eager to resume his playing career.
