Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Tuesday restored the life ban imposed on Indian  cricketer  S Sreesanth in the IPL spot-fixing case, just months after having lifted the ban on the former cricketer.

Back in 2015, the BCCI had imposed a life ban on ex-Rajasthan Royals player  Sreesanth in connection with the IPL spot-fixing controversy, during a match between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals in the 2013 season of the cash-rich Indian Premier League.

 

The BCCI had earlier in April this year rejected Sreesanth's plea for a review of his life ban, saying it will not compromise on its zero tolerance policy towards corruption.

The country's cricket board had also informed the Kerala High Court that a criminal court exonerating Sreesanth of spot-fixing charges was not enough to lift the lifetime ban on him.

After Sreesanth approached the Kerala High Court in March this year with a petition seeking the lifting of his ban, the court asked him to file a review plea before the BCCI.

The BCCI, though, remained adamant and had earlier refused to grant Sreesanth a 'no objection certificate' for playing in Scotland which led him to launch a scathing attack on the board.
