‘BCCI says No’ to remove life time ban on Sreesanth

India’s cricketing board made its stand known on Sreesanth’s ban issue. BCCI made it clear that they don’t have any second thoughts on revoking  Sreesanth’s life time ban.

Many rumors were circling in the cricketing circles in wake of Delhi Court’s decision to drop all charges against  former Indian pacer S Sreesanth along with spinner Ankeet Chavan and others. In the past, former Indian pacer S Sreesanth was charged in the IPL 2013 spot-fixing case.

All the 36 accused persons including Sreesanth, Chavan and Ajit Chandila were discharged in the IPL-6 spot fixing case by Patiala House Court last week but the Indian board had refused to lift their ongoing ban.

The Kerala Cricket Association had made a plea to the BCCI for allowing Sreesanth to play again but Thakur said there will be no rethink on the life ban of the two cricketers.

“The earlier decision of BCCI’s disciplinary committee ban on this case will stay on. Disciplinary proceedings are different, criminal proceedings are different. The action taken in the past was based on the disciplinary action for the indiscipline of these players and reports submitted by the anti-corruption unit. So the same decision of banning these players will continue on these players,”Thakur told reporters.
