Former Indian right-arm pacer S. Sreesanth comes up with a touchy post, thanking his supporters in all humility, who stood by him during the years when he was away from cricket. Sreesanth whose lifetime cricket ban was reduced to seven years in 2019, is likely to come back in competitive cricket. Practising in nets; he is expected to play for Kerala during 2021 edition of the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy that begins on January 10. Besides, he is likely to feature in IPL 2021 auction.
Sreesanth had played for India in all the formats and even featured in the World Cups. In the Indian Premier League (IPL), he played for Rajasthan Royals (RR). However, when his career was going fine, his illicit act brought trouble to his own career. He was caught in spot-fixing in the 2013 IPL following which he was banned for a lifetime. However, good sense prevailed as the ban was reduced to seven years in August 2019.
