Former Indian speedster Sreesanth got a fresh lease of life on Friday as the Supreme Court set aside the life ban imposed on him for the 2013 spot-fixing controversy. The cricketer’s housemates in ‘Bigg Boss’ last year reacted with jubilation over ‘justice being served’ and expressed confidence that he’d make a 'mighty comeback' into the team.
Anup Jalota, Jasleen Matharu, Deepak Thakur, Shivashish Mishra and Somi Khan were among those who took to social media to convey their delight. Here’s how they reacted:
Surprisingly, many of them had an on-off equation with Sreesanth during their time on the show and their fights and arguments had made headlines. But they bonded after the conclusion of the show and their reactions just show all is well between them.
Sreesanth’s wife Bhuvneshwari Sreesanth had also conveyed her gratitude to the Almighty after the SC decision.
The SC order was in response to Sreesanth’s plea challenging the Kerala High Court’s decision to restore the life ban on him.
While setting aside the BCCI disciplinary committee's order of life ban on Sreesanth, the bench had directed the cricket board to decide on a fresh quantum of punishment for the Kerala pacer, saying it had not considered all circumstances and also added that he will be given the opportunity to be heard by the committee.
The court also said that its decision had no bearing on the pending proceedings in the Delhi High Court, where Delhi Police has challenged a trial court’s order absolving all those accused in the spot-fixing case.
