Reportedly Sreesanth is aiming to make a comeback in the Indian Test team and pick at least 100 wickets before ending his career after his life ban was reduced to 7 years by the BCCI Ombudsman DK Jain on Tuesday. Earlier the Supreme Court had in the year set aside the life ban imposed by BCCI disciplinary committee for his alleged role in the 2013 IPL spot-fixing scandal and asked the Board Ombudsman to reconsider within three months, the quantum of punishment.

Furthermore on Tuesday, Justice DK Jain decided that his ban will end on September 13, 2020 -- seven years as compared to the original life ban. Sreesanth told the media "I am extremely delighted with what I have heard now. Thanks to each one of my well-wishers who prayed for me and the prayers have been answered. I am 36 now and next year I will be 37. I have 87 Test wickets and my aim is I want to finish my career with 100 Test wickets. I am confident that I can return to the Indian Test team and always wanted to play under virat kohli”.



Moreover DK Jain considered the fact that Sreesanth co-operated with the inquiry and observed that BCCI could not contest Sreesanth's plea that the alleged offenses did not substantially damage the IPL's commercial value. "In the report of the Commissioner there is no allegation that Mr. Sreesanth did not co-operate in the Inquiry. Further the BCCI has not been able to controvert the specific plea of Mr. Sreesanth that the offences allegedly committed by him did not substantially damage the commercial value of the IPL matches, or even the final result of the subject match".
