Tainted India pacer S Sreesanth has sensationally revealed he contemplated suicide after being accused of match-fixing in 2013 IPL.
S Sreesanth along with Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan received life ban by the BCCI’s disciplinary committee in September 2013 for the fixing scandal in IPL. Later, he was cleared of all charges by a Delhi trial court in 2015 due to insufficient evidence under the MCOCA act; a special law passed by the Maharashtra state government to tackle organised crime syndicates and terrorism.

But the BCCI has remained firm with its decision since it was independent to any criminal proceeding and was based on its independent disciplinary action. As a result, Sreesanth never managed to return to the field for India or any team related to the Indian cricket board. In fact, he even failed to obtain a No-Objection Certificate (NOC) from the BCCI to play outside India. Last year, he had received an offer from a Scottish club. However, the BCCI did not give him the NOC.
And he recently revealed that he decided to take the dire step of committing suicide after being accused of match-fixing. S Sreesanth revealed it in the reality show Big Boss. The World Cup-winning player shared his painful past with his co-contestants. The cricketer talked about his match-fixing controversy at length and cried his heart out.
