Banned Indian pacer S Sreesanth has recently shared his disappointment at former Team India skippers Rahul Dravid and MS Dhoni, saying that the duo did not support when he needed.
During an interview with the Republic TV, Sreesanth said, “I was sad that Rahul (Dravid) stood by Rajasthan Royals, and didn’t support me despite knowing me well. I messaged MS Dhoni and sent him an emotional message. But he didn’t respond. Six or more of the top 10 Indian players were accused by the Delhi Police. If the other six names of the accused come out, it will really affect the game.”
He further added, “Let’s face it, this is not the national team. The BCCI is a private firm. If I’m given an opportunity and I’m allowed to play, then I would play for another country.”
Sreesanth was one of the three Rajasthan Royals players who was alleged of spot-fixing during an Indian Premier League match against rivals Chennai Super Kings back in 2013.
After having lifted Sreesanth’s life ban in the IPL spot-fixing case back in August, the pacer’s ban was restored by the Kerala High Court on October 17. However, the pacer had recently stated that he was not giving up, and would approach the Supreme Court to get his ban lifted.
