It was the BCCI Disciplinary Committee headed by the present Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley that slapped a life ban on Sreesanth. Being only the second player from Kerala to represent the country, he has played 27 Tests and 53 One Day Internationals scalping 87 and 75 batsmen respectively. Recently he was also spotted at the Nirmala College where he was present for movie promotions. Thanks Nirmala college muvattupuzha and the grand central mall for such reception..#electric #team 5 movie promotions pic.twitter.com/rqMGso9enD — Sreesanth (@sreesanth36) February 17, 2017 Sreesanth was also expecting the BJP government to help him when Anurag Thakur was the chief and therefore, he had contested for the Kerala Assembly elections in 2016. But nothing of that sort actually happened. He even lost the highly-reputed Thiruvananthapuram seat. The 34-year-old still is highly optimistic and very hopeful to wear the tricolour cap again. Now all eyes will be on how the former CAG Vinod Rai treats this case.
