In a recent development, the Kerala Police has registered a cheating case against former Indian cricketer S Sreesanth. The complaint was filed by Sareesh Gopalan from Kerala's Choonda, who alleged that two other accused, Rajiv Kumar and Venkatesh Kini, took ₹18.70 lakh from him in the name of constructing a sports academy in Karnataka's Kollur.

Sreesanth is reportedly a partner in the proposed academy, and Gopalan claimed he invested the money after being offered the opportunity to become a partner as well. In a recent development, the Kerala Police has registered a cheating case against former Indian cricketer S Sreesanth.

The police have registered the case under Section 420 (Cheating and dishonestly inducing the delivery of property) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), naming Sreesanth as the third accused. The former Indian bowler was banned by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for a lifetime in August 2013 on charges of spot-fixing during Indian Premier League (IPL) season 6, but his ban was reduced to seven years by the Supreme Court in 2019, which he completed in September 2020.

Sreesanth's bowling heroics helped his side clinch a win in Legends League Cricket

Nowadays, Sreesanth is playing in the Legend League Cricket and bowling really well. He still has the ability to swing the ball early on and bowl brilliant Yorkers in the death. Recently, in a match against Bhiwara Kings, he bowled a brilliant last over to secure a victory for his team.

He had 13 runs to defend in the final over up against Lendl Simmons, who was at the strike playing at 92. Sreesanth was smashed for a six off the very first ball and had to defend 7 runs in the last five balls. He secured a 3-run win for his team, courtesy of his brilliant yorkers in the death.
