Indian cricketer Sreeshanth was against granted life-ban by the high court on Tuesday. Sreeshanth was slapped with life ban again by the division bench of the high court.
The division bench of the court cancelled the single bench’s order acquitting him in the 2013 match-fixing case against him.
The high court had accepted the appeal of the BCCI, which said that he was not free of all charges.
BCCI slapped ban on the player on October 10, 2013 following the match-fixing case of IPL season number six. The high court had removed the ban on him after accepting the petition given by Sreeshanth.
On May 16, 2013, Sreeshanth, a player of Rajasthan Royals team, was arrested by Mumbai police after he was alleged to have fixed the match he played against Punjab Kings Eleven. Soon after this, BCCI took disciplinary action against him. Though Patiyala Additional Sessions Court had acquitted Sreeshanth, the BCCI didn’t remove the ban. It was after this that he approached the high court.
