Cricket fans remember S Sreesanth and his ban from the game for life, after being accused for spot fixing. However, his ban was later reduced, and he’s due to return in September 2020. As the newest video of him training is going viral around social media, the 36 year old from Kerala is still physically fit enough to return to the 22 yards.
Sreesanth was banned from cricket after confessing to take part in match fixing in the 2013 Indian Premier League tournament, where he played for Rajasthan Royals. He was arrested and later confessed to take part in the fixing. After he was freed in 2015, Kerela High Court reinstated the ban on the player, before BCCI recently reducing it to seven years.
However, the medium pace bowler from Kothamangalam is still physically fit enough to take on the field again, as seen in the video of him training with Sachin Baby, the domestic captain of Kerala, and also, blasting his wickets off in the net.
