Sreesanth thanks SC for setting aside BCCI's life ban

Sreesanth thanks SC for setting aside BCCI's life ban

The bench headed by Justice Ashok Bhushan set aside the life ban on Sreesanth and asked the board to reconsider the quantum of punishment within three months. "The court has given me a huge lifeline and I am happy with the opportunity given to me", Sreesanth told NDTV after the ruling.

Sreesanth has argued that the life ban was unfair accusing the Delhi Police to resort to torture to get his confessions in the spot fixing scandal. And in order to "confirm the fix", he was "required to place a hand towel in his visible pocket while ensuring there was no such towel during the first over".

We are super eager to see Sreesanth play for the pride of India.

The criminal proceedings pending against the former cricketer in the Delhi High Court should not be affected by this verdict, where the Delhi Police has challenged a trial court's order discharging all accused, including Sreesanth, in the IPL spot-fixing case, the court added.

"It is a welcome move by the Supreme Court that they have instructed BCCI to have a re-look at Sreesanth's ban". It's six years and I haven't played cricket, which was my life.I hope that the BCCI respects the verdict of the country's highest court and allows me to at least get back to the cricket field. However, in two months, the High Court allowed BCCI's appeal and restored the ban. The issue of Sreesanth's ban might be discussed on the sidelines of the meeting as well.

In its judgement, the court concluded that BCCI had "not violated" any principles of natural justice while determining the sanction. I think it is the maximum period of a ban.

The court also said that Sreesanth had conducted himself with dignity by not immediately challenging the original ban.

Although in July 2015, the Patiala House Court dropped the charges against the 36 accused in the scandal, the BCCI refused to reverse its disciplinary order against Sreesanth based on evidence.

BCCI acting president C K Khanna made it clear that it will be completely CoA's call as the onus is on it to implement the apex court's order.
