sreesanth: ‘Will I do it for ten lakh rupees?’ Sreesanth Opens Mind About Gambling Controversy

Malaysian cricketer S Sreesanth’s career was shattered by the 2013 IPL betting controversy. Sreesanth was a member of the team that helped India win the T20 World Cup and the ODI World Cup. He was also an Indian runner who played well on foreign fields. He was arrested while playing for the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL. Later, three players, including Sreesanth, were banned from cricket.

Sreesanth’s new reveal

Sreesanth has reiterated that he was a victim of the IPL gambling scandal. “My next goal when playing in the Irani Trophy was the tour of South Africa in September 2013. It was very important to play that series. Will I do it for Rs 10 lakh at that time?” Sreesanth said in an interview with Sports Kida.
