Kerala High Court lifts life ban on Sreesanth

Kerala High Court lifts life ban on Sreesanth

It was a big respite for cricketer S Sreesanth when Kerala High Court on Monday, lifted the life ban imposed on him by BCCI in the wake of the 2013 IPL spot-fixing scandal. Sreesanth had filed a petition challenging the BCCI's decision not to lift the ban despite being exonerated by the Delhi High Court in 2015. 

क्रिकेटर एस श्रीसंत को एक बड़ी राहत मिली जब केरल उच्च न्यायालय ने सोमवार को 2013 के आईपीएल स्पॉट-फिक्सिंग कांड के मद्देनजर बीसीसीआई द्वारा उन पर लगाए आजीवन प्रतिबंध को हटा दिया। श्रीसंत ने 2015 में दिल्ली हाईकोर्ट द्वारा दोषमुक्त घोषित होने के बावजूद प्रतिबंध ना हटाए जाने के बीसीसीआई के फैसले को चुनौती देने की याचिका दायर की थी।
