S Sreesanth wants to play ICC World Cup 2023 for India

Kochi: When Indian fast bowler S Sreesanth said, ‘Call me, I will come and play cricket anywhere’, the frustration was clearly visible on his face. Sreesanth, who was part of the Indian cricket team that won the 2007 T20 World Cup and 2011 World Cup, made this statement after the end of the life ban imposed on him by the BCCI in 2013 in the so-called IPL spot-fixing case.

Sreesanth said, ‘I am talking to agents in Australia, New Zealand and Sri Lanka and I want to play club level cricket in these countries. My goal is to represent my country in the 2023 World Cup. My second wish is that I want to play in the match between MCC and World XI at Lord’s.

Significantly, in 2013, Sreesanth was banned for life by the BCCI in the IPL spot-fixing case. However, in 2015, a special court in Delhi acquitted him of all the charges against him.

In the year 2018, the Kerala High Court had abolished the life ban imposed on him by the BCCI and canceled all action against him. However, a High Court bench upheld the ban.

Sreesanth challenged this decision in the Supreme Court. His crime was upheld by the Supreme Court in March last year, but the BCCI was directed to reduce his sentence and the Indian Board reduced his life ban sentence to 7 years, which has now expired. The 37-year-old Sreesanth has played 27 Tests, 53 ODIs and 10 T20 matches for India so far, in which he has taken 87, 75 and 7 wickets respectively.
