BCCI has imposed a lifetime ban on Sreesanth for playing from India because of spot-fixing during an IPL match in 2013. A single bench of court on September 18th ordered BCCI to lift the ban, After another appeal by BCCI on keeping the ban, a division bench of the high court on set aside the single bench’s verdict. In the latest interview, Sreesanth said that ‘BCCI has imposed the ban, not ICC. If not India, I can play for any other country, because am 34 now and I can only play for maximum six more years. As a person who loves cricket, I want to play cricket. And not only that, BCCI is a private firm; it is only us who say that this is the Indian team, but you know BCCI is a private body after all. So, if I play for any other country, it probably may be the same. Yes, representing Kerala in Ranji Trophy is different. I had hoped to win Ranji Trophy, Irani for Kerala, but the decision rests up on the BCCI.’

Calling it just ’empty talk’, BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Chaudhary said that a banned cricketer cannot play for any other country or association powered by ICC.
