Once Banned for Match-fixing, Sreesanth Hints at Domestic Return in Emotional Tweet

Temperamental fast bowler Shantakumaran Sreesanth, better known as S Sreesanth is set to make a return to the game soon. The India International player was banned by the BCCI for life due to his alleged involvement in the spot-fixing scandal that rocked the cricket world seven years ago.

According to a SportsStar report, Sreesanth’s seven-year ban came to an end in September 2020 and the fast bowler may soon return to competitive cricket for Kerala cricket team. The state cricket association has given the nod to his inclusion provided he meets the fitness and other requisite norms.

Sajan K. Varghese, President, Kerala Cricket Association told SportsStar that, ‘His ban is getting over in September and whenever the camp starts, we will consider him for the camp. But he has to prove his fitness’.

Citing no clarity regarding when the camp is going to be held, ‘we are waiting for government guidelines’, he added.
