Some good news for S Sreesanth and his fans. The right-handed fast bowler is all set to return to Keral Ranji team as his ban would be lifted in September this year. Subsequently, Kerala have decided to include the fast bowler in their Ranji squad.
Sree was banned in 2013 after he was reportedly involved in a spot-fixing scandal. Ajit Chandela and Ankit Chawan were the other who were slapped with the ban.
The right-handed fast bowler thanked the Kerala side. “I am really indebted to the KCA for giving me a chance. I will prove my fitness and storm back to the game. It is time for all controversies to take rest,” he said in Kochi.
Sreesanth has had successful career before he was banned by the BCCI. He was a part of the Indian setup that won the inaugural World T20 in 2007 and the ICC World Cup in 2011 under the captaincy of MS Dhoni. He even grabbed the final catch of Misbah-ul-Haq to see India won the first-ever T20 World Cup off Joginder Sharma.
In 27 Tests, he has picked 87 wickets for India while in the ODIs and T20Is, Sreesanth’s wickets tally reads 75 and 7 respectively. He has also played 44 IPL matches scalping 40 wickets in total.
