An irate S Sreesanth on Friday took to Twitter to attack BCCI after the board decided to appeal against the lifting of the life-ban on the tainted pacer.
The Kerala High Court had recently lifted the life ban on the 34-year-old. Sreesanth also vowed to make competitive comeback despite BCCI’s decision.
“the board is firm on its zero tolerance policy on corruption and match-fixing,” he added.@bcci office?? Then what about csk and Rajasthan?— Sreesanth (@sreesanth36) August 11, 2017

Sreesanth was banned for life by the BCCI for his alleged role in the IPL spot-fixing in 2013. Last Monday, a single judge bench of the Kerala High Court had passed an order that the bowler’s life-ban be lifted.
However, the BCCI is firm on its stand that they will not allow the speedster to make an immediate comeback. Sreesanth has played 27 Tests, 53 ODIs and 10 T20 Internationals for India with his last international appearance being in August 2011.
