Sreesanth, along with Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan, were arrested by the Delhi police on suspicion of spot-fixing during IPL 2013 while playing for Rajasthan Royals. They were subsequently sent to Tihar Jail.

In a recent interview to The Indian Express, Sreesanth has gone on to reveal how he was treated inside the jail during that period.

“There was this guy – murderer and rapist – who used to abuse me a lot. Every other word was an abuse. I was scared of him. I soon realised I had to do something about it. I started to speak to him and I remember after a few days he said, ‘Tere me to dum nahi, teri to fatt gayi… Saath rehna, tero ko karne ke liye bohot log hai. (You are scared. Stay with me. Lots of people want to target you)’,” Sreesanth told The Indian Express.

Following this, Sreesanth also went onto reveal his hatred for Chennai Super Kings, where he questioned the legitimacy of RP Singh’s no balls when RCB played CSK that year.

“Luckily, thanks to lord Guruvayurappan, I didn’t bowl leg-spin in those two balls. Which is something I would have done as it was a dry wicket but luckily, I didn’t? What would have they said if I had?”

“Please explain in the same IPL, when RP Singh bowled a big no ball, not once but twice, did they say anything about it?”

Sreesanth currently is training hard to make it back to the national side. He still maintains that all the charges against him were false.
