IPL Spot-fixing case: Supreme Court sets aside life ban on Sreesanth

IPL Spot-fixing case: Supreme Court sets aside life ban on Sreesanth

The court asked the cricket board to consider a fresh punishment for the former India pacer within the next three months.

Although in July 2015, the Patiala House Court dropped the charges against the 36 accused in the scandal, the BCCI refused to reverse its disciplinary order against Sreesanth based on evidence.

The Supreme Court Bench, which also included Justice KM Joseph, had on 1 March reserved its order on the appeal against the Karala High Court order affirming the life ban imposed by the BCCI.

The apex court also said that its verdict shall have no effect on the criminal proceedings pending against the former cricketer in the Delhi High Court, where the Delhi Police has challenged a trial court's order discharging all accused, including Sreesanth, in the IPL spot-fixing case. The issue of Sreesanth's ban might be discussed on the sidelines of the meeting as well.

May 16, 2013: Delhi Police arrests Rajasthan Royals' Sreesanth, Ankit Chavan, Ajit Chandila, and alleged bookie Jiju Janardhan along with 10 other bookies.

"Yes, I have heard about the Supreme Court order".

Sreesanth said to the media, "It's a huge relief". Sreesanth then moved the top court challenging the Kerala High Court order upholding the lifetime ban on him.

August 27, 2018: The Supreme Court decides to hear Sreesanth's appeal after eight weeks.

Sreesanth's lawyer Salman Khurshid, a former Indian minister of external affairs, plead his case in the latest instance, and said that the BCCI had not followed the laws of natural justice while determining the sanction, and pointed out that a life ban was "excessive and maximum". On September 13, 2013, BCCI was found Sreesanth guilty on all the three counts - corruption, betting and bringing disrepute to the game - and imposed the lifetime ban on him. "I just want to play whatever cricket I can", said Sreesanth, who has been a part of the 2007 World T20 and 2011 ODI World Cup winning squads.

Jan 30, 2019: The Supreme Court questions Sreesanth about why he didn't inform the BCCI that he was being approached for alleged spot-fixing in 2013.
