The bench passed this order on Sreesanth's plea challenging the decision of a division bench of the Kerala High Court which had restored the life ban imposed on him by the BCCI. Calling the ban on Sreesanth playing cricket "unfair", senior advocate Salman Khurshid, appearing for the cricketer, told the bench that "nowhere in the world, life ban has been imposed on a cricketer like this".

India's Supreme Court on Friday set aside the life ban imposed on S Sreesanth by the Board of Control for Cricket in India.

The Court has directed the disciplinary committee of BCCI to take a decision on the quantum of punishment within three month period starting 15 March.

Soon after the verdict, Sreesanth spoke to the media. "The court has given me a huge lifeline and I am happy with the opportunity given to me", Sreesanth told NDTV after the ruling. "The lifetime ban has lifted and it's a huge relief".

The court hasn't found the 36-year-old to be innocent, but wants the BCCI to alter the quantum of punishment. I have been keeping myself fit and practising regularly. "So I hope they do the justice, and you all again pray for us", said Bhuvaneswari during the talk.

The former fast-bowler had been banned for his involvement in spot-fixing during the Indian Premier League 2013.

The top court though maintained that he is guilty of betting/match-fixing.

The apex court past year asked the Delhi High Court to decide expeditiously the appeal filed by the Delhi Police challenging a trial court order discharging several accused, including Sreesanth.
