Indian cricketer S Sreesanth has finally been relieved after 4 long years as the Kerala High Court on August 7 has lifted the lifetime ban imposed on him by the Board of control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for his alleged involvement in the spot-fixing during the sixth edition of the cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL). In 2013, Delhi police accused him and other Rajasthan Royals’ players Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila of indulging in the spot-fixing. Since then, he has been fighting to get his pride back as he has always claimed that he is innocent. In 2015, Delhi’s Patiala High Court discharged Sreesanth and 36 others in the spot-fixing case. BCCI Disciplinary Committee headed by the present Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, however, imposed a life ban on him. Early in March 2017, Sreesanth approached Kerala HC challenging the BCCI’s decision of imposing a ban.
Soon after news agency ANI confirmed and shared this news on Twitter, all his fans across the World erupted in joy and congratulated their favourite sports star on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. Relieved after hearing the news, Sreesanth also expressed his feelings on his official Twitter handle. He posted an image of himself and captioned it as: “God is great..thanks for the all the love and support.”
