S Sreesanth has opened up another can of worms again, this time criticizing his former teammates Rahul Dravid and MS Dhoni. Sreesanth was banned by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for spot-fixing in 2013 IPL season. He was banned for life from playing cricket and since then his career has almost been ruined.
For Sreesanth, it has been very difficult for him to get back to his normal life and nothing has been the same so far.
Sreesanth has now opened about how his fellow teammates who were also his close friends, didn’t help him at the time of the ban.
As per a recent report, in an interview given to Republic TV, he quoted, “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.”
Not only this, he revealed something unexpected and shocking. He further quoted in the report, “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 mentioned that we have to face it as it is nothing about the national team.
Calling BCCI a private firm he contended that if given a chance to play again, he would play for another country.
This is how people have been reacting to Sreesanth’s statements
