Former India pacer S. Sreesanth sang part of a popular Hindi song and posted a video of it on his official Twitter account after failing to find a buyer in mega auction. Sreesanth went unsold in the two-day of the Indian T20 League mega auction . The right-arm pacer has played for Punjab, Rajasthan, and now-defunct Kochi in a career spanning five years from 2008 to 2013. In 2013, he was banned by the Board for Control Of Cricket in India (BCCI) after his alleged involvement in spot-fixing alongside Ankit Chavan and Ajit Chandila. He was banned for life but the ban was reduced to seven years which ended in 2020. He kept his base price at 50 lakh but could not find a buyer.
Last year, he returned to domestic cricket for Kerela in the Vijay Hazare Trophy (ODI Tournament) and Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy (T20 Tournament). Recently the 2011 World Cup-winner was added into the Kerela squad for Ranji tournament. The red-ball tournament is returning after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID19 pandemic and will start on February 17. The tournament will be played in two phases. The first phase will end on March 6 and the second phase will be played after the Indian T20 league. The schedule for the second phase hasn’t been announced yet.
The 2007 20-20 World Cup-winner was delighted to be back in the Kerala team. “Gods grace and lots of hard work and perseverance..thanks a lot to each and everyone of u for keeping faith in my ability..Great to be back in whites just the beginning..gonna keep giving my very best every single moment #humbled #skyisnotthelimit #love #bcci,” the fast bowler wrote on Twitter on Sunday (February 13). Kerala will play its first game on Thursday (February 17).
Meanwhile, after going unsold in the auction, he sang ‘Ruk Jaana Nahin’ from the movie Imtihan sung by legendary Kishore Kumar.
