Out of favor Indian pacer S Sreesanth is bagging the headlines yet again with his attempt to be back in cricketing action. Sreesanth was banned by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) back in 2013. He, along with two other cricketers of Rajasthan Royals franchise in the IPL, were alleged to be involved in the IPL spot-fixing scandal. The Delhi court later acquitted Sreesanth of all the charges but the pacer from Kerala failed to feature in any of the competitive cricket match since the issue.
In a recent update, the pace bowler wished to ply his trade in Scotland cricket after having received a request from them. He hoped for the NOC (No Objection Certificate) to be given to him by the BCCI for his participation in Scotland. However, the board looked firm on its stand of not allowing Sree to participate in the fixtures their and refused to issue the NOC.
Absolutely miffed and disappointed with the same, the former cricketer threatened to move things to the court and eventually did so as well. He dragged the BCCI to the Kerala High Court. Now, the BCCI administrators and the Supreme Court appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) have confirmed that they did discuss his issue at a recent meeting. However, they are yet to come to a conclusion on the same.
“The committee members have discussed and have noted the same in the minutes. There may be some development and a new disciplinary committee may be formed but there has been no change in their present stand,” said a source as per the quotes in Deccan Chronicle.
Earlier this month, Sreesanth was seen in Muscat, Oman. He had gone there for the inauguration of a jewellery showroom. He was spotted bowling in the nets at Muscat and had a few words of tips to share as well with the young boys there.
