CoA should submit their reply before next hearing:
Now, it is the time for CoA to submit their reply regarding the Sreesanth case. It would be interesting to see how the respective board would react to the situation, as they always been critical on the return of Sreesanth to the game of cricket.
BCCI has often stressed out that they are following a zero-tolerance policy in order to make a statement for the youngsters that they will not encourage any false things in the game of cricket. But, the respective courts in India are passing their judgement in favour of the fast bowler. However, the Supreme Court’s judgement will decide the fate of Sreesanth.
Earlier, in the high court, the judgement came on his side, but, BCCI never allowed him to play the game, as they wanted to follow zero-tolerance policy. In fact, BCCI hasn’t allowed him to travel and play for UK Cricket clubs as well. Sreesanth got the offer from Scottish club to play for their side but unfortunately, Sreesanth failed to make it, as BCCI objected it.
Sreesanth was the part of the Indian team in both major ICC events. He was called as a lucky cricketer for India, who took the catch of Misbah in the final of ICC World Cup 2007. Ironically, he also featured in ICC World Cup 2011 final as well.
