The Indian bowler plans for a comeback in cricket soon
S Sreesanth is eyeing for a record of 100 wickets in Test cricket once he comes back to playing cricket soon. The 36-year-old had played a total of 27 Tests, 53 ODIs, and 20 T20Is before he was banned from cricket last 2013. He plans on getting the record when he plays for India again.
'Of course, we have seen many cricketers playing at this age. I am fit and will restart my training soon. God permits, I want to make a comeback to the Indian team and complete my 100 wickets in Test cricket. After years of struggle, it is still sinking in', Sreesanth admitted.
Sreesanth's cricket ban was supposed to be a lifetime ban. However, the BCCI recently cut the ban short, reducing it to only 7 years. The bowler's ban will be lifted on September 13 next year. 'I am so relieved and happy. All these years I have been trying to prove my innocence and the efforts have finally bore fruit. It's God's grace that I have finally managed to come out of this and hopefully, I can be active in cricket again', he stated.
S Sreesanth was arrested with two other Indian cricket players for spot-fixing in 2013. He was allegedly included in the IPL corruption issue as well. Sreesanth will be 37 years old when his ban lifts next year. He has claimed 169 wickets in all cricket formats before the ban. You can check out more information about the IPL at Betwala.
