Kerala HC restores ban on Sreesanth, bowler wants 13 names in Lodha Report to be revealed

In a barrage of tweets, Sreesanth fumed his anger after the Kerala HC restored the ban imposed by the BCCI

After a division bench of the Kerala High Court on Tuesday, October 17, restored life ban imposed on Sreesanth, the Indian pacer seems to have been fuming about the decision. He feels it was the “worst decision” ever. In a series of tweets posted by the pacer after the verdict, he claimed that the real culprits were not brought to book. He also asked about the 13 names that were mentioned in the Lodha report that was submitted to the Supreme Court.

Earlier, a single bench verdict had lifted the ban imposed by the BCCI after the pacer was caught indulging in match-fixing during IPL 6. The cricket board had said,

The decision of the sessions court to acquit the petitioner from the criminal charges has no impact whatsoever on the decision of the internal disciplinary committee of the BCCI to ban the petitioner from playing cricket tournaments organised by the BCCI and/or its affiliates.

Taking to Twitter, Sreesanth posted a series of tweets after the court’s verdict.

In his first tweet he wrote, “This is the worst decision ever..special rule for me?what about real culprits?What about chennai super kings ? And what about Rajasthan ?”

He further went on to tweet, “And what about the accused 13 names in Lodha report?? No one wants to know about it?i will keep fighting for my right..God is great.”

Sreesanth now only has the option of approaching the Supreme Court to appeal against the verdict.
