Cricketer and Bigg Boss 12 contestant Sreesanth can now sigh in relief perhaps with the Supreme Court lifting the life ban imposed on him by the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) for his alleged involvement in the 2013 IPL spot-fixing controversy. The Court has asked the board to consider a fresh punishment for Sreesanth within the next three months. 
 
The court, however, also rejected Sreesanth's plea to not be punished at all as he acquitted in the case by the court. According to reports, a bench comprising of Justice Ashok Bhushan and KM Joseph said that Sreesanth will be given an opportunity of being heard by the committee on the quantum of the punishment. It was in October 2017 when a Kerala High Court's division bench had reimposed the life ban on Sreesanth after a petition was issued by the BCCI. 
 
Sreesanth, who was a part of Rajasthan Royals, along with teammates Ankit Chavan and Ajit Chandila was arrested by Delhi Police for their alleged involvement in the spot-fixing controversy in May 2013. All the three players were banned for life by BCCI. Meanwhile, Sreesanth appeared on Bigg Boss 12 and in an interview with Pinkvilla had reiterated how much he misses cricket and would love to be back on the field.
