Supreme Court Lifts Ban
3 years ago
The Honourable Supreme Court of India, today in verdict as quoted by Sressanth’s lawyer Salman Khurshid has lifted the ban on the cricketer but has told BCCI to decide a new punishment for the cricketer in next 3 months.
Those who don’t know S.Sreesanth, the World Cup Winning Player was convicted as one of the 3 player involved in IPL spot fixing in 2013 season, which eventually led to ban of Rajasthan Royals & Chennai Super Kings for 2 years. It is still unknown whether the other banned players Ankit Chavan & Ajit Chandila have challlenged BCCI’s life ban.
While BCCI has stated that they have done right thing against these players. Also, the Delhi Police has cleared all the three from any charges related to spor fixing way back in 2015. So, it will be interesting to see whether BCCI challenges this decision or not.
