Big Relief for Sreesanth, Kerala HC asks BCCI to lift ban

Thiruanathapuram: A big relief for S sreesanth. The Kerala High Court on Monday lifted the life ban imposed on him by the BCCI in the wake of the 2013 IPL spot-fixing scandal.

The family members of the cricketer have expressed sigh of relief over the HC decision.

In his order, Justice A Muhamed Mustaque also set aside all proceedings against Sreesanth initiated by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

The court had earlier sought the BCCI's stand on the plea by the cricketer challenging the life ban imposed upon him by the game's governing body following the 2013 IPL-6 spot-fixing scandal.  The BCCI had filed a counter-affidavit on the issue in the court in response to the plea by Sreesanth, who had challenged the life ban despite a court dropping all charges against the 34-year-old pacer.

All the 36 accused, including Sreesanth, Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila were let off in the spot-fixing case by a Patiala House court in July 2015.'

The BCCI, however, had refused to alter its disciplinary decision even after the verdict.
