Mumbai: Shanthakumaran Sreesanth, who was banned from cricket by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for his alleged involvement in the Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing scandal, donated his earnings from an event to the blind Indian cricket team.
Sreesanth was in Oman this week to inaugurate a few jewellery showrooms. The former Team India paceman also revealed that he was also invited by a local cricket club to bowl to a few batsmen.
“I was also invited by a local club (not affiliated to Oman Cricket) to bowl at a few batsmen and the young men were impressed when I spoke on the game,” Sreesanth was quoted as saying in Mid-Day.
“I won’t disclose the figure I received for the promotional event, but whatever I have earned will be donated to India’s blind team,” he said.
The Indian blind cricket team capped off a good start to the year, winning the T20 World Cup for the blind after defeating Pakistan in the final....
