Sreesanth mulls representing another country

Sreesanth mulls representing another country”

Days after hitting out at the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) following his life ban being restored by the Kerala High Court, S Sreesanth has hinted he will try representing a country other than India to make sure he gets to play the sport he loves.

"I have been banned by the BCCI but not by the ICC (International Cricket Council)".

He said since BCCI has banned him from playing in India, he has the freedom to play cricket for any other country. "All this is just an empty talk and we know our legal position", Chaudhary was quoted as saying. This after a two-judge bench of the Kerala High Court recently reinstated the life ban on him for a spot-fixing incident during 2013 IPL.

In August, a single bench of the court had quashed the BCCI's ban on Sreesanth.

Devastated by the rapid turnaround in fortunes, Sreesanth was visibly distraught at the decision and had vowed to carry on his fight against the BCCI, alleging that he was being unfairly targetted. A miffed Sreesanth has been able to express his views on Twitter so far as the Kerala High Court and BCCI have fallen a deaf ear to the cricketer.

"BCCI is a private firm".

Previously, Sreesanth made an attempt to play in the Scottish League but wasn't given the nod by BCCI.

It will be interesting to see how the former Indian pacer responds. Following allegations of spot-fixing during an Indian Premier League (IPL) game in 2013, the seamer was handed a life ban by the national cricket board.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Friday hit back at S Sreesanth and made it clear that he can not play for any other country.

Sreesanth, who appears desperate to kick-start his career once again, put the blame squarely on the BCCI for jeopardising his career and said that even though he plays for Kerala, and hopes to win titles like Ranji and Irani with his state side, the final decision still rests with the BCCI. However, the former India pacer filed a writ petition in February this year, pleading that in 2015, a trial court had dropped criminal charges filed against him by the Delhi Police and therefore, the BCCI should lift the ban as well.
