In a big news for the discarded Indian fast bowler S Sreesanth, Kerala Hight Court has sent a notice to BCCI on his plea to lift the lifetime ban imposed on him. The notice was sent after a petition was filed by the fast bowler against BCCI’s decision to not let him play cricket. The 34-year-old fast bowler was accused of involving in spot-fixing during the 2013 season of Indian Premier League but in July 2015, was acquitted in the case. After that, he was planning to return to the cricket field with a local tournament but was denied a No Objection Certificate by Board of Cricket Control in India.

This did know go well with the pacer and he took to Twitter to announce that he’ll take his fight to court. Sreesanth revealed that he has tried to reach BCCi officials on multiple occasions but didn’t get any response from them. He posted a tweet saying, “To date @BCCI officials MV Sridhar & Rahul Johri have ignored multiple communications from me and my associates.”

Sreesanth stated that when announced to make a comeback in cricket, he was given a letter which is dated 2013 with the ban order and is not applicable now. He said, “This letter is now in the hands of my legal representatives who have written once more to @BCCI. It has never been my intention to cause distress to KCA or to my local club. I will now not play on 19th & continue my battle off the field.”

A few weeks ago, Sreesanth was involved in an ugly banter with former Indian cricketer and now commentator, Aakash Chopra on Twitter. When a fan asked Chopra whether we could see Sreesanth playing for India again, the former Indian opener gave a rude reply by saying ‘NO’. Sreesanth was quick to react to this and posted a tweet which read as, “I will make a comeback brother..can’t believe u don’t believe that I will play again..anyways God bless us.”
