"Huge Lifeline": Sreesanth After Top Court Ends Life Ban By Cricket Board

The Supreme Court on Friday set aside the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) disciplinary committee's order imposing a life ban on fast bowler S Sreesanth for his alleged involvement in the 2013 IPL spot-fixing scandal. The court asked the cricket board to consider a fresh punishment for the former India pacer within the next three months. However, the court rejected Sreesanth's plea that he should not be punished at all because he was acquitted in the spot-fixing case. "It's a huge relief. The court has given me a huge lifeline and I am happy with the opportunity given to me," Sreesanth told NDTV after the ruling.
