Fans of S Sreesanth are all in a state of ecstasy after Supreme Court ordered the BCCI to cancel the life ban of Sreesanth for his alleged involvement in the match-fixing scandal.

Sreesanth has argued that the life ban was unfair accusing the Delhi Police to resort to torture to get his confessions in the spot fixing scandal. The court asked the cricket board to consider a fresh punishment for the former India pacer within the next three months.

"It is a welcome move by the Supreme Court that they have instructed BCCI to have a re-look at Sreesanth's ban".

May 16, 2013: Delhi Police arrests Rajasthan Royals' Sreesanth, Ankit Chavan, Ajit Chandila, and alleged bookie Jiju Janardhan along with 10 other bookies. The issue of Sreesanth's ban might be discussed on the sidelines of the meeting as well. "The court has given me a huge lifeline and I am happy with the opportunity given to me", Sreesanth told NDTV after the ruling.

Despite the same, the BCCI had declined to reverse its disciplinary committee order against Sreesanth, which it asserted was passed on the basis of evidence. The Delhi Police had subsequently challenged the decision in Delhi High Court. "The punishment period has already been completed as I have been banned for nearly six years", said Sreesanth.
