Right-arm swing pacer, S. Sreesanth’s comeback dreams came to a halt when he was denied an NOC by the BCCI to play in the Scotland Cricket League. According to reports the BCCI denied him the NOC due to the ban imposed on him for the spot-fixing scam back in 2013.
“The BCCI has an internal mechanism and it was their disciplinary committee which slapped a life ban on Sreesanth after conducting its own probe in the Indian Premier League (IPL) match fixing case in which he was arrested in 2013,” the IANS report quoted a BCCI source as saying. “The BCCI is the final word when it comes to lifting of bans.”
One of the few talented fast bowlers of the country he has both pace and swing to trouble the batsmen with. His career was on a peak when the BCCI found him guilty of match-fixing during an IPL match in 2013 for which he was handed a life-time ban.
Sreesanth, being banned by the BCCI was using private facilities to train for the league. He had signed a contract with Glenrothes for the Scottish League that starts in April. But BCCI’s decision to not give him an NOC can finally unplug his cricket career.
