Sreesanth returns to cricket field, to play in KCA’s T20

    Just another 1 year for Sreesanth to play cricket again; BCCI reduces life ban to 7 years

    Keralite pacer S Sreesanth is making his comeback on the cricket field. He is returning after a gap of seven years. He will play in the President’s Cup T20 to be held in Alapuzha from December 17 onwards. He will be playing for KCA Tigers Team. Six teams will play in the tournament.

    His last international match was against Sri Lanka on April 2 in 2011. Unfortunately in 2013, he was slapped with a life ban from the BCCI for his involvement in the Indian Premier League match-fixing scandal. He was later acquitted as there was no evidence in the case, but his ban continued. His ban was reduced to seven years following the intervention of the Supreme Court. His seven-year ban ended earlier in September. KCA will consider Sreesanth for the Kerala Renji Team.

    Before the ban, Sreesanth had played for Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals in the IPL. A member of 2007 T20 and 2011 World Cup-winning teams, Sreesanth has played 27 Tests, 53 ODIs and 10 T20Is. He has 50 wickets from 60 T20 matches to his credit.
