SC lifts Sreesanth’s life ban, its BCCI’s call now
Supreme Court ends life ban on S Sreesanth, orders BCCI to reconsider punishment
15 March, 2019, 12:20
S Sreesanth, the tainted Indian fast bowler, was charged with the crime of spot-fixing during the 2013 edition of the cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL) when he represented the Rajasthan Royals (RR).
Thereafter, in August a year ago, a single judge of the Kerala High Court had lifted the life ban and set aside all proceedings by the BCCI. The top court directed the cricket administrative body to reconsider the quantum of punishment to be given to the banned cricketer within three months. The apex court bench of justices Ashok Bhushan and KM Joseph, however, made it clear that its order shall have no effect on criminal proceedings pending against him. The issue of Sreesanth's ban might be discussed on the sidelines of the meeting as well. His team-mate and Mumbai spinner Ankeet Chavan is also given the same punishment. The court passes the verdict while allowing a writ filed by Sreesanth challenging the BCCI disciplinary committee's decision.
In an earlier hearing, Sreesanth had told the court that he initially confessed to the Special Cell of Delhi Police about his alleged involvement in the spot-fixing scandal to escape sustained and continuous police torture. Thereafter, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) slapped the 36-year-old with a lifetime ban and ever since he has been straining hard with all his might to prove himself innocent. Supreme Court had given three months time to decide the quantum of the punishment.
"I have heard about the Supreme Court order but we are yet to get the copy of the order".
"This is a Supreme Court order and obviously a call needs to be taken".
August 27, 2018: The Supreme Court decides to hear Sreesanth's appeal after eight weeks. "The Supreme Court has given me a lifeline and it has helped me restore my dignity", said Sreesanth in reaction to the apex court's decision. He says that the life ban on cricketer-turned-politician Mohammad Azharuddin-who was accused of being involved in a match-fixing scandal in 2000-was revised, and that the BCCI should do the same in his case.
