New Delhi: The Supreme Court Friday set aside the life ban on S Sreesanth and asked the cricket board to reconsider the quantum of punishment. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had banned Sreesanth for life over his role in the spot-fixing scandal in the 2013 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).


The SC bench, headed by Justice Ashok Bhushan, pronounced the order on Friday (March 15) over a plea filed by Sreesanth.

The court has directed BCCI to reconsider the punishment within a three-month period. The 35-year-old cricketer will get an opportunity to be heard by BCCI’s disciplinary committee on the quantum of the punishment, the court further ruled.
