Moreover, it asked the world's richest cricket board to decide afresh on the point of the quantum of punishment given to him within 3 months as per reports in India Today.

In a relief to cricketer Sreesanth, the Supreme Court has set aside the lifetime ban imposed on him by the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI), for his alleged involvement in match-fixing during the Indian Premier League in 2013. "The Supreme Court has given me a lifeline and it has helped me restore my dignity", said Sreesanth in reaction to the apex court's decision.

The top court added, "Sreesanth will get the opportunity to be heard by BCCI's disciplinary committee on the quantum of punishment".

Sreesanth stated that he has been practicing cricket to remain fit. I request the BCCI not to take all 90 days to take a decision on the punishment for me.

The court, however, also rejected Sreesanth's plea to not be punished at all as he acquitted in the case by the court.

Although in July 2015, the Patiala House Court dropped the charges against the 36 accused in the scandal, the BCCI refused to reverse its disciplinary order against Sreesanth based on evidence. In a recent interaction with media, Bhuvaneswari revealed that she is quite happy about the fact that the honourable Supreme Court has revoked the life ban of her husband. "I am stubborn and nothing will happen", Sreesanth was quoted as saying to the bench, of Ashok Bhushan and Justice K.M. Joseph.
