S Sreesanth, the tainted Indian fast bowler, is all set to mark his return to competitive cricket in the upcoming edition of the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy, scheduled to start on January 10. The pacer hasn’t played any form of cricket since the 2013 edition of the Indian Premier League, the very tournament where he was alleged for spot-fixing and his career went into the doldrums.
At one point in time, it seemed that Sreesanth might never play competitive cricket. However, at the age of 37, the bowler has been able to turn his fortunes around. To start with, he was picked among the Kerala probables for the T20 tournament. But their head coach Tinu Yohanan, also a former Indian fast bowler had stated that Sreesanth’s selection will depend on his levels of fitness.
In the end, Sreesanth made his way into the squad and his joy knew no bounds. Quite expectantly, Sreesanth is currently overjoyed before stepping on the field of play. He uploaded a video where he can be seen, getting the Kerala cap for the upcoming domestic tournament.
He captioned the video and wrote, “There is nothing stronger than a broken man, who has rebuilt himself… Thanks a lot for all the Support and love ..#Gods grace #humbled #cricket #keralacricketassociation #bcci #grateful #respect #love #bestisyettocome,”
Here’s Sreesanth’s post-

In the meantime, Suresh Raina, the former Indian cricketer, was excited to see the speedster make his comeback. The southpaw, who retired from international cricket back in August, is looking forward to seeing Sreesanth bowl some magical spells. He replied on the Instagram post and wrote, “Good luck brother man. Can’t wait to see magic spells again.”
Here’s the screenshot of Raina’s reply –
Sreesanth was an integral member of Team India when he forayed into international cricket. As time passed by, he showed his class across formats at the highest level. He was mostly known for his aggressive celebrations and his ability to bowl with an upright seam.
Back in the final of the 2007 T20 World Cup, Sreesanth took the famous catch to dismiss Misbah-ul-Haq, taking India to victory. He was also a part of the 2011 World Cup-winning squad.
