S Sreesanth Returns After Seven-year Ban: Former India Pacer Set To Play In KCA President's Cup T20
Former India pacer S Sreesanth will return to competitive cricket with a local T20 tournament organised by the Kerala Cricket Association, his first after completing a seven-year-ban on charges of match-fixing. Sreesanth, who was banned by the BCCI over his alleged involvement in spot-fixing in the IPL, features in the list of players for the T20 event in Alappuzha. His ban ended in September this year. He has been picked in the KCA Tigers team to be captained by state team skipper Sachin Baby in the tournament, a KCA official said.
According to the KCA, six teams–KCA Royals, KCA Tigers, KCA Tuskers, KCA Eagles, KCA Panthers and KCA Lions- – have been selected by a committee constituted for the inaugural KCA President’s Cup T20 tournament.
