As soon as the decision came that the Patiala House Court had dropped all charges of spot-fixing against the trio of former India pacer S. Sreesanth, Mumbai left-arm spinner Ankeet Chavan and Rajasthan off-spinner Ajit Chandila, it was gone viral within no time.

Though no official reaction from BCCI has come, the former India captain, Dada, Sourav Ganguly today opined that he was happy for the three cricketers cleared by a Delhi court of spot-fixing charges and insisted that the Board should not have a problem with the order.

Ganguly said “It’s very good for them. The court has done whatever they felt right,” Ganguly told reporters at the Cricket Association of Bengal’s annual prize distribution in Kolkata.”

It is worthwhile to mention that Sreesanth and Chavan are currently serving life bans imposed by the BCCI, while Chandila’s hearing is still on.

When asked whether Sreesanth could still make a comeback, Ganguly said: “The court has taken away charges from him (Sreesanth), I don’t think BCCI will have a problem. Anyway, it’s up to BCCI now.”

Ganguly, however, refused to comment on the legal order. “It’s too much of a legal matter, I won’t be able to answer this question.”
