Sunday, 26 July,Kochi: Cricket Association today decided to write to the BCCI seeking lifting of the life ban imposed on pacer S Sreesanth who has been discharged by a Delhi court in the IPL-6 spot-fixing case.
KCA President T C Mathew, who is also a BCCI vice-president, will write to the Board regarding this after a Delhi court yesterday dropped charges against former India pacer Sreesanth and two others in the 2013 IPL spot-fixing and betting scandal.
“We will appeal to BCCI to lift the ban. We will soon write to BCCI as the court has discharged Sreesanth (in the IPL spot-fixing case),” KCA Secretary T N Ananthanarayanan told PTI.
Mathew, who is currently in Bangalore, said the KCA will wait for response from the BCCI after sending the letter requesting lifting of ban imposed on Sreesanth.
A delegation of KCA office bearers may also meet the BCCI top brass, KCA officials said.
Soon after the court verdict yesterday, the BCCI had said they have decided to stick to its ban on the three cricketers — Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan — for the time being.
