Sreesanth mulls legal action against BCCI
Kochi: Indian speedster S Sreesanth is mulling legal action against the BCCI.
Sreesanth has made his stand clear close on the heels of BCCI sending the letter announcing the ban on Sreesanth to Kerala Cricket Association.
Sreesanth said that he has filed an appeal to BCCI interim president Vinod Rai against the ban.
"If no favourable decision is taken within 10 days, then I will approach the court. The BCCI should show the same justice to everybody. Justice was denied to me," Sreesanth said.
The KCA received the notice from BCCI announcing the ban on Sreesanth on Wednesday evening.
KCA secretary Jayesh George told Mathrubhumi.com that KCA has sent the official notice received from BCCI to Sreesanth.
The BCCI had sent an official letter to Sreesanth on October 2013 in which it said that he has been banned from Cricket.
Jayesh said that the BCCI has sent the copy of that letter to KCA now.
Sreesanth had said earlier that he has not received any official notice from the BCCI regarding the ban and hence he will play at the Ernakulam District Cricket League.
There were reports that the District Cricket League may be postponed as no decision has been taken on Sreesanth's case.
However, Jayesh George said that is not for the KCA to take a decision on the postponement of District Cricket League and that the Ernakulam Cricket Club has to take the decision in this regard.
"If Sreesanth is allowed to play while the ban is on, then the KCA will have to ban Ernakulam cricket club," Jayesh said.
