Sreesanth's 7-year ban for alleged spot-fixing ended in August 2020.Speaking to ANI, S Sreesanth said, "Thanks to BCCI as it's been 7-long years and I have been training really hard. I will keep giving my best because this is something for which I have waited for 7 long years. I am grateful to the selectors for giving me this opportunity." "Every bowl and every moment is important for me and it was never like that before," he added. In August 2013, Sreesanth and two other teammates of Rajasthan Royals (RR) were banned from playing for a lifetime by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for alleged spot-fixing in IPL.
