S Sreesanth, the right-arm Indian fast bowler, is gearing up to make his comeback after a long gap of 7 years and is set to play in the President’s Cup T20 Tournament. Notably, the BCCI imposed a life-time ban on Sreesanth in August 2013 for his involvement in alleged spot-fixing during the Indian Premier League (IPL), along with Rajasthan Royals (RR) teammates Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan.
Sreesanth’s ban was reduced to seven years last year, and it ended in September this year.
On Monday, the 37-year-old took to Twitter to post a heartfelt message for his fans. “It’s just about time to roll my arms again giving the very best to the game I love the most. To all my lovely people; alwys remember”ur the best version of urself but make sure ur getting better nd better nd be the very best version please don’t ever give up” u r the #family,” he wrote, along with the photo.
