SC to hear Sreesanth's plea to lift life ban on Monday

Kochi: Former Indian pacer S Sreesanth has moved the Supreme Court challenging the life ban imposed on him by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The apex court will hear the case on February 5 (Monday).

Earlier, in a big set back to the 35-year-old, the Kerala High Court had overruled a single judge bench's decision to lift the ban on him.

Sreesanth, who was a member of the Indian team which won the ICC World T20 in 2007 and the 2011 ICC World Cup, stated in his plea that as a sportsman he has the fundamental right to live with dignity and reputation and BCCI’s decision was under the purview of judicial review. The pacer was handed a life ban by the BCCI for his alleged involvement in the 2013 IPL spot-fixing scandal while being a part of Rajasthan Royals.

All the 36 accused in the spot-fixing case, including Sreesanth and his Royals teammates Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila, were let off by a Patiala House Court in July, 2015.

However, the BCCI refused to lift the ban on the Kerala player.
