Sreesanth set to ignore BCCI orders, to play for Kerala club

New Delhi: World Cup winning Indian cricketer S Sreesanth believes there is lot of cricket remaining in him and expects to make a comeback on the cricket field.

Sreesanth plans to play two-day club match for Ernakulam Cricket Club on Feb 19.

“When there is no official letter stating my life ban then why will the umpires stop me from playing? There have been no emails, courier or anything which states that I am banned from playing cricket. Not even my state or district associations have received any letter with regards to this from the BCCI.

“All that I have received is a suspension letter when I was in Tihar jail. A suspension letter is valid only for 90 days. The BCCI has announced about my life ban only in the media. There is no official correspondence till date. I was stupid to have not played cricket for this long. It is only now I realised that what the hell I was doing,” Sreesanth told Hindustan Times

Sreesanth was slapped with a life ban after being involved in match fixing during IPL 2013. He was one of the three cricketers along with Ajit Chandila and Ankit Chavan who were found guilty of the serious offence.

Though Sreesanth was exempted from all the charges by a Delhi court but the then BCCI president Anurag Thakur refused to clear his stance on the tainted fast bowler.

Sreesanth last played a Test match for India way back in August 2011.
