In a major setback for India fast bowler S Sreesanth, the Kerala high court on Tuesday upheld the appeal made by the Board of Control for Cricket in India against the earlier single bench verdict that lifted the life ban on the bowler.
All the 36 accused, including Sreesanth, Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila were discharged in the IPL-6 spot-fixing case by Patiala House Court in July 2015. The BCCI, however, had refused to alter its disciplinary decision.
