Ajit Chandila and Ankit Chavan admitted to their mistakes and faced the ban but Sreesanth sticks with the fact that the spot-fixing scandal had nothing to do with him. The pacer’s suspension was restored by the Kerala High Court on October 17. He plans on taking the matter to the high court next.
“I was sad that Rahul (Dravid) stood by Rajasthan Royals, and didn’t support me despite knowing me well. I messaged MS Dhoni and sent him an emotional message. But he didn’t respond. Six or more of the top 10 Indian players were accused by the Delhi Police,” Sreesanth Told To Republic TV.
“If the other six names of the accused come out, it will really affect the game. Let’s face it, this is not the national team. The BCCI is a private firm. If I’m given an opportunity and I’m allowed to play, then I would play for another country,” he added.
It has been over four years, since Sreesanth got banned from all forms of cricket, after becoming a major suspect of Spot-fixing.
“Six or more of the top 10 Indian players were accused by the Delhi Police. If the other six names of the accused come out, it will really affect the game,” the 34-year-old said.
Though the chances of Sreesanth playing international cricket again is small, it seems like he is not going to give up very easily. At 34, it is difficult for any fast bowler who has not played for 5 years to make a comeback. Sreesanth has acted in a Malayalam movie, Team 5 and is also acting in a Hindi movie called Aksar 2.
