‘You are not above god,’ angry Sreesanth slams BCCI

NEW DELHI: Visibly raged Indian pacer S. Sreesanth on Friday insisted and hoped he would make a competitive comeback despite Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)’s decision to appeal against the lifting of the life ban on the tainted pacer.

On Thursday, the BCCI decided to appeal to the Division Bench of Kerala High Court against lifting of life ban on the 34-year-old.

“@bcci I’m not begging ,I’m asking to give my livelihood back .its my right. U guys are not above God. I will play again..???????????,” an angry Sreesanth wrote on his Twitter page.

“Cmon @bcci this is worst u can do to anyone that too who is proven innocent not just once but again and again..don’t know why u doing this?,” he lamented further.

The Indian court on August 7 revoked the BCCI decision to impose a life ban on former Indian cricket team speedster S. Sreesanth

Last year a special court in Delhi had acquitted him in the 2013 Indian Premier League spot-fixing case.

After the verdict, S. Sreesanth had approached the BCCI to remove the ban but his plea was turned down. Later, he approached the Kerala High Court saying that though the court had given him a clean chit, the cricket body continued to harass him. He also pleaded that his sports career was getting ruined because of the ban.

In May 2013, Delhi police had arrested Sreesanth and two of his Rajasthan Royals teammates, Ajit Chadilia and Ankit Chavan, on charges of spot fixing. Later, the BCCI had imposed a life ban on him.
