Former Indian pacer S Sreesanth received a huge respite as the Patiala House court hearing the IPL betting and spot fixing scandal asked the Delhi police if they had enough evidence against Sreesanth who is accused of spot-fixing while playing for the Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League.
An elated Sreesanth said, “I am so happy with what has happened today. I had said many times that I have done no wrong. I am so fortunate that all along my parents, my family, my wife and friends always stood by me. I am sure I will be able to return to cricket,”
The pacer who was recently appointed as the coach of Kerala Strikers in the Indian Celebrity League also said,
“I have no complaints against anyone and all what I want now is to return to cricket,”
Earlier in the day the Judge asked if there was conclusive evidence in the case against Sreesanth. “Why was he arrested and where are the evidences against him,”
Also asking whether there was any links of him receiving money for the alleged spot-fixing and did the investigators find him spending the money directly or indirectly.
This is a huge relief for Sreesanth who is serving a life ban from the BCCI following allegations and his arrest. (Also read IPL 8 Player Auction list)
