Kerala HC lifts life ban imposed on cricketer Sreesanth

Kerala HC lifts life ban imposed on cricketer Sreesanth

"I have always felt that competition gets the best out of me". It is sad that something like this happened to Anil.

The next edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and domestic cricket's pay structure will come up for discussions when the Committee of Administrators (CoA) meets the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) here on Wednesday.

"He has lost four years but Sreesanth will have to bring his fitness up to the required standards". On account of the life ban, the pacer can not play even league cricket nor get access for practice to any of the cricket grounds where the BCCI or the state cricket associations have a stake. He will have to put in a good performance.

The women's cricket team, on the other hand, have impressed one and all with their stupendous performance, especially in the recently concluded ICC Women's World Cup where they reached the finals. India also had a good run in limited-overs cricket, winning home series against New Zealand and England, and being runners-up at the Champions Trophy in June. Kumble stepped down immediately after the end of the tournament after the BCCI had conveyed to the spin legend that Kohli had expressed reservations about his style of coaching.

"Even though I made repeated requests to lift the ban, particularly in the light of the discharge order of the learned Patiala Assistant Sessions Court, the authority concerned has not taken any positive decision in this regard", Sreesanth wrote.

He highlighted the case of Pakistani bowler Amir, who was found guilty of match-fixing in court and banned for five years in 2010.

After Sreesanth approached the Kerala High Court in March this year with a petition seeking the lifting of his ban, the court asked him to file a review plea before the BCCI.

However, despite being cleared of the charges, the Indian cricket board had chose to continue with its ban on the three players.

Azharuddin's words make sense in this regard and whatever the pros and cons of the move may be in the long run, there is little doubt that it was the right thing to do at the time.
