A ruling by the Kerala court to lift the ban on S Sreesanth has given a big reprieve to the Pacer, as with the court ordering the BCCI to lift ban on the cricketer, his hopes of making a comeback has now given an upliftment and he is eyeing a Test return soon,
“I want to play Test cricket again, I still have three to four years of cricket left in me. I am glad to be back where I belong. Hard times come and go. My aim is to get match fit now and I will prepare for Ranji cricket. I am bowling. I have a small indoor net in my house and that is where I practice. I believe I got to prove myself,” Sreesanth told NDTV.

BCCI banned S Sreesanth and two other cricketers after they were arrested for fixing charges during IPL 2013. However, the court though later freed all the three players of all the charges in the year 2015. Still, BCCI did not change its stand and kept the doors closed for Sreesanth.
Now with a court ordering BCCI to lift the ban on the Kerala pacer, it can lead to the board loosening its stand and allowing a comeback for the two-time World Cup winner. Though it has been learned that the board is looking to challenge the ruling of Kerala court in High Court.
If the board allows a comeback for Sreesanth, then the first challenge for the pacer would be to maintain the fitness level and gain his spot back in the Kerala Ranji team.

During his time away from cricket, apart from practising, Sreesanth turned into a politician and contested Assembly elections of the state last year. Later, he also acted in a Malayalam movie which released recently.
It will be interesting to see the next step of BCCI and look whether board changes its stand or not.
