Supreme Court sets aside life ban on Sreesanth; asks BCCI to reconsider punishment

Date:

New Delhi: In what could be a relief for seamer S Sreesanth, the Supreme Court on Friday set aside the life ban on former Indian cricketer for his alleged involvement in the 2013 IPL spot-fixing scandal which was imposed by the Board of Control of Cricket in India’s (BCCI) disciplinary committee.

A bench of the Supreme Court, headed by Justice Ashok Bhushan, asked the BCCI to decide afresh on the point of the quantum of punishment given to S Sreesanth.

The apex court further said that its verdict shall have no effect on the criminal proceedings pending against the former cricketer in the Delhi High Court, where the Delhi Police has challenged a trial court’s order discharging all accused, including Sreesanth, in the IPL spot-fixing case.

The bench passed this order on Sreesanth’s plea challenging the decision of a division bench of the Kerala High Court which had restored the life ban imposed on him by the BCCI.
