If not India, I can play for any other country, says S Sreesanth

Dubai: After the Kerala High Court restored life ban on S Sreesanth on Tuesday, the fast-bowler hinted that he might play for another country, adding that he has a maximum of only six years left to play.
In an event in Dubai, Sreesanth said on October 20, “BCCI has imposed the ban, not ICC. If not India, I can play for any other country, because I am 34 now and I can only play for maximum six more years. As a person who loves cricket, I want to play cricket. And not only that, BCCI is a private firm; it is only us who say that this is the Indian team, but you know BCCI is a private body after all.”
Sreesanth has been involved in this case ever since being accused of spot-fixing during the 2013 IPL. After investigation by the board, a life ban was imposed on him in 2013. Two years later, the Delhi Police acquitted him of all charges. This year, Sreesanth filed a writ petition to get his ban lifted while also vying to play T20 cricket abroad.
