Kerala High Court on Tuesday restored the lifetime ban imposed on Indian pacer S. Sreesanth by BCCI. The decision comes as a major setback for the fast bowler who called it the worst decision ever and questioned the inclusion of Chennai Superkings and Rajasthan Royals in IPL.

Earlier, Kerala High Court in August lifted the ban imposed on him by BCCI during 2013 edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing case. Sreesanth was charged alongside two of his Rajasthan Royals teammates, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan, for spot-fixing in IPL-6.

The HC divisional bench however made it clear that the single bench order from Kerala High Court had not absolved Sreesanth of all the charges. The divisional bench also added that investigation conducted by BCCI was on the right path.

The fast bowler, however, vowed to carry on fighting to get his name cleared and said that his family and close friends were still supporting him.
