The saga between Sreesanth and Board of Cricket Control India has taken a new twist as the Kerala-born fast bowler has hinted to take the board to court over his life ban. Sreesanth is left with no other option but to appeal after the BCCI refused to provide him with a No Objection Certificate that would allow him to resume playing cricket. The agitated fast bowlers took to Twitter to announce that he will continue to fight off the field.

Sreesanth also revealed that since he planned to play club cricket, he has been 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.

The 34-year-old fast bowler who was accused in the match-fixing scandal was involved in another controversy a few days ago when commentator and analyst, Aakash Chopra ruled the possibility of him making a comeback to the Indian side. Sreesanth bashed the former Indian batsman for his double standards and also thanked fans for supporting him through the tough time. “Thanks to all for the support during the past few days, it gives me great heart to keep pushing for my return to the sport I love,” said Sreesanth.
