The Supreme Court on Friday (Mar 15) revoked the life ban on the cricketer S Sreesanth and told the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) to decide afresh the quantum of punishment to the cricketer.
Sreesanth had challenged the Kerala High Court order upholding the lifetime ban on him by the BCCI for his alleged involvement in match fixing during 2013 IPL.
The bench of Justices Ashok Bhushan and K M Joseph had reserved the order on Feb 28 after telling Sreesanth and BCCI to file their written submissions in two weeks.
BCCI had imposed a lifetime ban on Sreesanth along with two fellow cricketers Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan, on the charge of spot-fixing during IPL 2013.
