Holding composure and strength, when the universe turns against you, is perhaps the best lesson offered by S Sreesanth.

Twelve days of relentless interrogation, 27 days in jail, seven-year ban from cricket for spot-fixing and having needed to stay with its load ever since. But S Sreesanth by no means gave up believing in himself.

He entered various fields such as politics, movies, reality shows but actuality reveals throughout his time away from the sport, the Kochi lad by no means gave up playing the sport which still ignites the fire inside him.

His cricket life-ban had been diminished to seven years and he’s into the final year of his ban interval. Sreesanth is primed to return to the sport after September 13 this year, most probably in the Ranji Trophy for Kerala team.

Primed to return to the sport

“Sreesanth will be considered for this year’s Ranji Trophy. It’s not that he is selected in the probables.

We want Sreesanth to be playing again. Everyone in Kerala Cricket Association is missing that,” Yohannan (Kerala’s bowling coach) told The Indian Express. 

He has begun his preparations by reinventing and sharpening his cricketing skills at his personal indoor cricketing facility within the final two months.

“I bowl 14 overs a day for six days a week. I bowl with the new-ball, semi-old ball and the red-ball.

I wanted to prepare myself for all formats and be ready whenever cricket restarts in the country no matter what format they are going to play first,” Sreesanth told Times of India

Want to enjoy once more

Sreesanth says his comeback isn’t to prove anything to anybody.

“Don’t ever give up, that’s my comeback story. My return to cricket should be an inspiration to everyone in life. I am not here to prove a point to myself nor anyone else. I missed what I loved doing in the last seven years. Now, please let me do what I love doing most for the next five years,”

Sreesanth said.

Spelling about his dream, Sreesanth says “I’ve all the time set unrealistic targets in life and went about reaching it, like enjoying for the nation. Now, I wish to win Ranji Trophy and Irani Trophy for Kerala.

If I do effectively in home cricket, don’t rule out my IPL comeback. I wish to play in IPL as a result of that’s the place it began. 

“Of course, my final dream is to play a vital function within the Indian workforce’s journey within the 2023 World Cup.

But greater than all the things else, I need my children to see their dad sporting the cricketing jersey and enjoying on the bottom once more,” he added.
