Ban On Cricketer Sreesanth Reduced!

Indian cricketer Sreesanth who was banned by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for life over spot-fixing gets a relief. His life ban has been reduced to seven years which means, Sreesanth is eligible to play cricket from August 2020.

BCCI Ombudsman Justice DK Jain gave the fresh ruling of reducing the life ban imposed on Sreesanth to seven years. Justice Jain also said BCCI has nothing prove against Sreesanth and in fact the Indian cricket body did not consider the plea of the cricketer positively. Sreesanth fully co-operated to probe launched by BCCI during the spot-fixing allegations but BCCI took the decision based on commercial brand value of IPL.

Sreesanth has last played for India in the year 2011 and he will be 37 years old next year. So there are less chances of him returning to the national team. He may settle for commentary role after all many ex-cricketers are turning so these days and making good money.
