New BCCI disciplinary committee to discuss on Sreesanth ban
India’s pace bowler Sreesanth, who has been life-banned by the BCCI, is yet to hear from the Indian cricket board on his NOC to play in Scotland.
The Supreme Court appointee Committee of Administrators are tight-lipped on the issue though they have discussed the Sreesanth case among themselves, it is learnt here.
“The committee members have discussed and have noted the same in the minutes. There may be some development and a new disciplinary committee may be formed but there has been no change in their present stand”, the source said.
Sree has not given up hope of playing cricket in Scotland. In fact, he wants to play for the country again. Earlier this month he tried his hands at bowling in nets in Muscat and also gave tips to the young boys there.
Speaking exclusively over his mobile on his return from Oman, he said, “I was invited by a businessman there for opening of their two jewellery show rooms. I was also invited by a local club (not affiliated with the Oman Cricket) to bowl at a few batsmen and the young boys were impressed when I spoke on the game”.
“I won’t disclose the appearance money I received for the promotional event but whatever I have earned will be donated to India’s blind team, which recently won the T-20 World Cup. I don’t want my other hand to know what I donate with one hand”.
Sreesanth’s interaction with the blind team is not new. He was at the presentation ceremony when India’s blind team played against Australia’s blind team in Kochi a few weeks ago.
Through his S36 Sports Store Sreesanth has been landing his support by sponsoring the Indian blind team with free kit, and this is something he’s bveen doing since his glory days in the full Indian team.
“My aim is to play the game. Within a month’s time I will be in Scotland to play for Glenrothes Cricket Club”.
Sreesanth’s Kochi-based lawyer Sivan Madathil is legally trying to get him NOC (to play in Scotland) from the Indian cricket board.
