Can Sreesanth make a dream comeback?
I was known to the world as Sreesanth, the cricketer and I too like it to remember as cricketer first.Sreesanth also wanted to play for 2019 World Cup which he knows is next to impossible. "I am really indebted to them and I will not let them down". It will take a few months for him just to regain fitness. And the paceman gave an interesting reply - "I am only 34". "They stood with me. I pumped iron to keep myself in shape".
But Kerala will not rush into bringing back Sreesanth. But Kerala cricket officials want leniency shown toward the cricketer. He was even thrown out of the Chinnaswamy Stadium previous year when he went there with the Telugu Warriors to play in the Celebrity Cricket League. "Many people supported me in thick and thin. I can pass on my experience to them and it would be great playing in the whites for my state", he added.
In case you didn't know.. Though the ordeal he has gone through after getting arrested in the IPL spot-fixing scandal in 2013 and being handed a life-ban by the BCCI has tempered him down, he still believes in his ability to stage comebacks. During 2013 IPL season, While Playing for the team Rajasthan Royals. Then how can the BCC impose a ban on him?
"It will be hard to revoke the ban imposed by a disciplinary committee in 2013". The fast bowler is now 34 years old, a number that doesn't favour his case. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammad Shami, Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah have all been in excellent nick and are challenging each other's spot in every match.
George was not sure if Sreesanth will qualify for the Ranji side. It's up to the selectors and the KCA to decide whether I should be included in the team.
The former pace bowler made his worldwide debut in 2005. So Sreesanth had gone to court again.
Second chances are a vital component of life. The BCCI had earlier filed a counter-affidavit on the issue before the court in response to the plea by Sreesanth, who had challenged the continued life ban on him from the games despite his acquittal of the match-fixing charges.
