Controversial speedster S Sreesant will be making a comeback to the field after a seven-year ban. The Kerala Cricket Association has decided to take him in the Kerala Ranjhi Cricket team.

He was arrested by the Delhi police in May 2013 along with two of his Rajasthan Royals team mates, Ajit Chandilia and Ankit Chavan. They were charged with spot-fixing and the Board of Control for Cricket India (BCCI) had imposed a life ban on him. Following that a special court acquitted him of all charges in 2015. 

In 2018, the Kerala High court revoked the decision to impose a life ban. However, in 2019 the Supreme Court held him guilty and asked the BCCI to reduce the quantum of punishment. The life ban was later reduced to seven years and will end in September 2020.

“I am really indebted to the KCA for giving me a chance. I will prove my fitness and storm back to the game. It is time for all controversies to take rest,” he told the media in Kochi. 

Kochi-based Sreesanth who is infamously known for his on-field pranks, took 87 wickets in 27 tests and 25 in one- day internationals. He was a member of the World Cup cricket winning team in 2011. 

He was the BJP Candidate from Thiruvananthapuram Central constituency in the last assembly election but he lost to Congress candidate V S Shivakumar.
