Former Indian pacer S Sreesanth has always been a controversial figure in Indian cricket. But the 2013 Indian Premier League (IPL) season was the most horrific and nightmarish for him.
This is because he was arrested by the police overnight as he alleged of spot-fixing. At that time he was playing for the Rajasthan Royals franchise. The entire incident turned his life upside down.
However later he was released of all the fixing charges. But the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) refused to lift the lifetime ban imposed on him.
Sreesanth has been battling with BCCI in the courtroom for some time now, but to no avail. Recently he also appeared in the reality show Bigg Boss, which is hosted by Bollywood actor Salman Khan.
There also he was surrounded by many controversies. Fans lashed out at him for questioning the upbringing of one of the contestants. He was also involved in an argument with Salman for breaking the rules of the house. Sreesanth even threatened a number of times to leave the show midway.

Affections pour in for Sreesanth
The show must have helped Sree to clear his image. This is because the fans are now showing their affection towards him. He had lost several times to the BCCI. But now Supreme Court have decided to hear him out.
The pacer from Kerala would now hope to make a comeback. He can at least clear his name totally and play in the domestic circuit before calling it quits from the game.
His wife Bhuvneshwari Sreesanth took to social media site Twitter to let the fans and followers know about the proceedings of the case. She also asked them to pray to God so that the ban is lifted and everything falls in place for her husband.
Since then tweets regarding support for the cricketer started pouring in. #JusticeForSreesanth started trending in social media. Fans even came out with banners outside the court in demand of lifting the ban of the tainted cricketer.
