Sreesanth is one of the skilled cricketers in the Indian cricket team. He was a right-arm bowler and right-handed batsman during his term in the Indian cricket team. The official cricket association has interdicted Sreesanth for life after spot-fixing in the 2013 IPL. On Tuesday, the BCCI has diminished the life-time period to 7 years. Now, Sreesanth is planning to make his comeback in the Indian Test Cricket team.
According to his statement, Sreesanth aims to make at least 100 wickets prior to finishing his cricket career. After his interdiction for a lifetime, the BCCI Ombudsman DK Jain reduced the term to 7 years. This official announcement has come on 20th August 2019. As per the announcement, his ban will finish on 13th September 2020. It's been almost 6 years since his interdiction from the Indian cricket team. The player needs to wait one more year in order to take part in the cricket team.
Sreesanth spoke to the media after the announcement made by BCCI. He said, 'I am extremely delighted with the announcement I have heard now. Thanks to each one of my well-wishers prayed for me and the prayers have been answered. I am 36 now and next year I will be 37. I have 87 Test wickets and my aim is I want to finish my career with 100 Test wickets. I am confident that I can return to the Indian Test team and always wanted to play under Virat Kohli.’
DK Jain took into consideration the truth that Sreesanth took part in the investigation without any dissent. They even thought that BCCI couldn't oppose Sreesanth's excuse and moreover, the thing he had done earlier didn't considerably ruin the commercial value of IPL.
In his order, Ombudsman said, 'In the report of the Commissioner there is no claim that Mr. Sreesanth did not co-operate in the examination. Additionally, the BCCI has not been able to controvert the specific request of Mr. Sreesanth that the breaches supposedly done by him did not substantially ruin the commercial value of the IPL matches or even the final result of the subject match.’
