The Supreme Court also asked the cricket board to reconsider Sreesanth's punishment within the next three months.

October 17, 2017: The Kerala High Court restores the life ban on cricketer S Sreesanth in response to an appeal filed by the BCCI CEO Rahul Johri against the single-judge verdict which had revoked the ban earlier. However, on appeal, a division bench of the High Court had restored the BCCI ban, leading to the current appeal in Supreme Court.

"It is a huge relief for me that the life ban is lifted".

The court said that harsh punishment of life ban should not be imposed in all cases.

The Supreme Court made it clear its order will not impact the criminal proceedings now pending against Sreesanth in the Delhi High Court. I have been keeping myself fit and practising regularly.

The BCCI now has a new ombudsman in Justice (Retd ) D K Jain and amicus curiae PS Narsimha, it is expected that the decision will be fast-tracked. "I am sure the BCCI will be kind to me and the decision will be in my favour", he said.

September 2013: Sreesanth is handed a life ban by the BCCI for his involvement in the spot-fixing case. Sreesanth challenged the order in court in 2013. On September 13, 2013, BCCI was found Sreesanth guilty on all the three counts - corruption, betting and bringing disrepute to the game - and imposed the lifetime ban on him.

The bench made it clear that Sreesanth will get the opportunity of being heard by the committee on the quantum of the punishment. Khurshid argued that Sreesanth should have been penalised with a five-year ban at the most for not reporting the approach made by bookies, an offence under the BCCI's code of conduct. Sreesanth then moved the top court challenging the Kerala High Court order upholding the lifetime ban on him. He says that the life ban on cricketer-turned-politician Mohammad Azharuddin-who was accused of being involved in a match-fixing scandal in 2000-was revised, and that the BCCI should do the same in his case.
