The Kerala High Court had on Monday lifted the life ban imposed by the BCCI on the pacer.
Kochi: In a strong worded statement flaying the BCCI’s decision to challenge the Kerala High Court order lifting his life ban, speedster Sreesanth reminded the cricket governing body that they are not above God.
“@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..,” he posted on his official Twitter handle.
Earlier in the day, Sreesanth took a potshot at ‘double-standards’ adopted by BCCI in a series of tweets:
“C mon @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?”
“"the board is firm on its zero tolerance policy on corruption and match-fixing," he added.@bcci office?? Then what about csk and Rajasthan?" asked Sreesanth.
The speedster was arrested on charges of alleged spot fixing while playing for Rajasthan Royals in the 2013 Indian Premier League.
Soon after his arrest, the Board of Cricket for Control in India's (BCCI) disciplinary committee had come down heavily on Sreesanth, slapping a life ban on him along with others involved in the spot fixing.
The Kerala High Court had on Monday lifted the life ban imposed by the BCCI on the pacer, paving way for his return to the cricket field.
However, the BBCI later stated that it would approach the division bench challenging the order.
