Former Indian pacer S. Sreesanth, who was recently given a huge sigh of relief by the Kerala High Court in response to his life ban, had to deal with another colossal setback today. In what can be termed as the sheer stubborn attitude by the BCCI, the world’s richest cricketing body has decided to challenge the decision of the Kerala High Court and will appeal against the revoking of Sreesanth’s life ban.

 

Sreesanth, a member of India’s famous wins in the 2007 World T20, 2008 CB Series and the 2011 World Cup, was sentenced with a life ban by the BCCI way back in 2013, for his apparent role in the 2013 IPL spot fixing scandal. The speedster from Kerala had also been sent to jail for his involvement, which ultimately wasn’t proven in a court of law citing a lack of evidence.

 

For four years, the talented pacer was sidelined to attending just events and doing media related stuff, as his cricketing career seemed to be headed absolutely nowhere. Having waited for a really long time to prove his innocence, Sreesanth finally made the move to challenge BCCI’s ban imposed on him.

 

Barely a few days ago, the pacer’s prayers were answered as the Kerala High Court questioned the BCCI on what basis was Sreesanth banned, despite having no solid evidence. As a result, the board was forced to accept the court’s judgment.

Now, however, the BCCI has openly challenged that verdict and will soon make an official appeal to overturn the verdict. Sreesanth in return was forced to lament his fortune and took to Twitter to vent out his frustration against the body.
