Sreesanth’s Life Ban Reduced To Seven Years, Ends In September 2020

New Delhi: Pacer S Sreesanth’s ban for alleged spot-fixing will end next August, BCCI Ombudsman D K Jain has ordered, observing that the cricketer is well past his prime having already served six years.
The BCCI banned Sreesanth, who is now 36, for life in August 2013 along with his Rajasthan Royals teammates Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan for indulging in alleged spot-fixing in the IPL of that year.
But on March 15 this year, the Supreme Court set aside the BCCI disciplinary committee’s order.
Now, in an order passed on August 7, Jain said “ends of justice” would be met by making it a seven-year suspension and letting him play next year.
