Sreesant, BJP, to bounce back at the hustings

Mon, Mar 28, 2016, 03:25 PM
Discredited cricketer Sreesant, who took the last catch of Captain Misbah-ul-Haq of Pakistan, which gave India the World Cup title in T20 final in Johannesburg in 2007, has joined the BJP and about to fight at the hustings from Kerala.

While reports said Sreesant has been fielded from Thiruvananthapuram, it has been clarified that Sreesant will in all likelihood be fielded from Tripunithu to contest against Excise Minister K. Babu.

The Kerala speedster is said to be hobnobbing with the BJP for the past 2 years, according to his father Santakumaran. The family is holding talks with the BJP on fielding the speedster in the coming assembly elections.

Sreesant's first love is cricket any day. He was banned for life for tucking a towel in the waist, which was interpreted as sign for fixing the match by interested parties. The lad who did commendable service to Team India was to remark that for a small mistake he was banned for life by the Cricket Board, while the board got away with murder.

Big fish eat small fish. Politics is the place where the clean-up of the system should begin. So Sreesant decision to join politics is in right place. Like he says cricket is his first love, the clean-up should begin with Kerala.

Sreesant is not alone as the victim of big cricket sharks. Mohammed Azharuddin has also been denied his 100th Test distinction following his ban for life from cricket. Even today, Azharuddin would be willing to contribute to Test cricket, if called upon. India has not seen a fielder like him or a batsemen who scored three successive centuries in Test cricket till today.

Now that the honourable courts and eminent judges know what the BCCI is all about, the discredited criketers should be allowed to play at least, if they are willing. This is the least the country could do for their handsome contributions.
