Cricket News: S Sreesasnth's lawyer explains the legal view of Sreesanth's ordeal

We all know what happened with S Sreesanth and what he has been through after the pace bowler was arrested on May 16, 2013, on charges of spot-fixing the IPL match between his team Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians. Although his charges were eventually dropped by a Delhi trial court on July 25, 2015, but the mental excruciating pain he dealt with was certainly huge. BCCI banned Sreesanth in August 2013, along with his Rajasthan Royals teammates Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan. It did not allow him to play despite the acquittal. This forced Sreesanth to continue his legal fight. On March 15, 2019, the Supreme Court set aside the BCCI disciplinary committee's order and asked the Board to reconsider the quantum of punishment. Later, in August, the Board's Ombudsman Justice (retd) DK Jain commuted the ban to seven years.
