As a seven-year prohibition coming closer to an end, India's fast bowler and an excellent Cricket player S. Sreesanth said that he's fit as well as miffed about playing cricket once more.

He as well as his Rajasthan Royals teammates Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan were all banned from cricket matches by the BCCI in August of 2013 for living in a supposed spot-fixing case in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Sreesanth had been banned for a long time.

However, the prohibition of his life was reduced last year to seven years and is due to end on 13 September. Sreesanth is sure to join the Kerala Ranji Team but awaits official notification.

About the ban on Sreesanth

Sreesanth was being arrested by Delhi Police as they had lots of information that would keep him behind bars, which they later shared with the media. They recorded a telephone call between Jiju Janardhanan, who admitted Sreesanth was an 18-year-old friend, and Chandresh Patel, a gambling bookie known as a CP. Janardhanan and Patel discussed details of a spot-fix, which included 14 runs for Sreesanth during an IPL game.

Sreesanth had to stretch on his mark for proving the fix, and then hang a towel out of his pants. There were hotel security images by Sreesanth's friend, Abhishek Shukla, who caught Rs 5.5 and some mobile phones, and went to Sreesanth's hotel room in the city of Mumbai (near to $8000). Sreesanth also made a call for Janardhanan to get the money, though he did not receive the money for 14 runs but for 13 runs. And the tearful confession of Sreesanth was there.

Yet, because betting in India is not legal first, there's no specific legislation for matching. Police have also had a problem. There is the 2005 Gambling Act in Great Britain, which they used when they spotted in 2010 for the criminal proceedings against Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Asif and Salman Butt. There was nothing but a conspiracy by the police to launder money for Sreesanth, Ankit Chavan, Ajit Chandila, and a total of 38 people. Also one of those charged was the Dawood Ibrahim.

Different conspiracies about Sreesanth

Sreesanth is recognized for several various issues. Some recognize him as a really upright, excessively-coached, fast-moving bowler with an outswinger hooping. But most of them recall the color, the controversy, the carnage he brought. The cricket always stood second to the chaos with Sreesanth. He went up and sneered in a domestic game at Sachin Tendulkar before Tendulkar struck him in the sixth place and told him to stay close. There is no documented proof of this, but it remains a very strong part of the lore of Sreesanth. Andrew Symonds once sledged when, Sreesanth, he was the twelfth person.

One time, after Andre Nel had asked about his heart, Sreesanth hit a ball six times and danced like an invisible ball around the wicket. Slapgate, where Harbhajan Singh attacked him physically after the match, does not even include that.
