Ex-cricketer Sreesanth was first in the news for his impressive form on the field and then for his spot-fixing controversy along with two other players during IPL. While the police claimed that Sreesanth had confessed to the spot-fixing charges against him, the latter has always maintained that he is innocent and that he was forced to sign the statement papers. This was soon followed by BCCI banning Sreesanth and Ankeet Chavan for life.

While in Bigg Boss 12, we saw Sreesanth break down quite a few times over his IPL controversy and how he still dreams of getting back to the Indian Team and playing for his country, a wish that countless of his fans want to see come true.
And in a recent live session with his followers, Sreesanth addressed the topic of coming back to the Indian Cricket Team. When a fan quizzed him about when will he return to the team, Sreesanth said-
“Yaar Jai Mata Di. Pehle ban hatne do. Uske baad performance karni hai, bohot mushkil hai, abhi humari team bohot achi hai toh koshish karunga. Hopefully I will make it.”
Well, we totally support Sreesanth’s optimism and also wish that he succeeds in both – his cricketing career and his entertainment stint.
