The Kerala Cricket Associations and Mumbai Cricket Associations want S Sreesanth and Ankit Chavan, respectively, back into the domestic cricket fold – Ranji cricket, Mumbai Mirror reported.

If the report is to be believed then S Sreesanth and Ankit Chavan’s acquittals from the four year old spot fixing scandal will be sweeter.

Both, KCA and MCA will write to BCCI to allow Sreeanth and Chavan to play in the domestic cricket.

“Since he (Sreesanth) has been exonerated by the court and all charges have been dropped, we will request the BCCI to lift the life ban so that he can return to active cricket,” TC Matthews, the secretary of Kerala Cricket Association (KCA) told Mirror.

“I will write to BCCI president and secretary straightaway. We want Sreesanth back,” the KCA official said.

The Mumbai Cricket Association has decided to take the root of KCA. “We’re happy with the court decision. Our player has been proved innocent and the taint is off him. He can now lead a normal life. It makes us happy,” said PV Shetty, the joint secretary of the association.

“If a player has been found innocent, why should he languish?” Shetty questioned.

Shetty also said the MCA will write to the board. “Our parent body is the BCCI and the punishment is by them. We have no choice but to abide by their action. We will, however, ask them what can we do in view of the court verdict? It is up to the BCCI.”

Now players have two options. They can write to the BCCI asking it to lift the ban. In that case the disciplinary committee has to review its past verdict if there are new developments. If BCCI snapped their request then the players will have to go to the court seeking an injunction on the board’s punishment.

In a statement said, they have decided to stick to its ban on the three cricketers for the time being.

“Any disciplinary proceeding or decision taken by the BCCI is independent to any criminal proceeding and has no bearing. The decisions of the BCCI, based on its independent disciplinary action, shall remain unaltered,” BCCI said
