While granting bail two days ago, the Delhi court came down heavily on Delhi Police for not being able to provide adequate evidence to book them under Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act, (MCOCA). The judge observed there was no prima facie evidence of cheating or criminal conspiracy.

After his release Sreesanth spoke to the media saying he played the game in the right spirit. The pacer reached Kochi on Wednesday morning. "It was like a nightmare and honestly by God's grace, I can't wait to meet my family. Everything will be sorted out and all I can say is that wait for the right time to come," said Sreesanth after getting out of the jail on Tuesday night.

He also said that he has not confessed. "No. I haven't confessed. All I can say is to please be patient. I have played the game in the right spirit and I have only been giving my level best every moment,' said Sreesanth.

Meanwhile Ankeet Chavan who got married recently said, "Want to thank the judiciary as I had not done anything. I believe in the judiciary and want to thank those who stood with me."
