Match-Fixing For Only Rs 10 Lakh? No Way, Says S Sreesanth

Kochi: Former Indian pacer S Sreesanth had everything going in his favour until the IPL match-fixing scandal in 2013 turned things topsy-turvy culminating in the arrest of the then Rajasthan Royals cricketer and two of his colleagues.

Now, years down the line Sreesanth has once again refuted all allegations stating he would not bother fixing matches for a paltry Rs 10 lakh.

“I had played the Irani Trophy and was looking to play the South African series, so that we can win in September 2013. We were going early, and it moves better in September. My goal was to play that series. A person like that, why would I do it, that too for 10 lakhs?, I am not talking big but I used to have bills of around 2 lakh when I partied around,” he told Sportskeeda.

Sreesanth whose BCCI suspension from the game was lifted in 2020, owes it to his fans and well-wishers who stood rock solid by his side during that low. “In my life, I have only helped and given belief. I have helped a lot of people, and those prayers helped me get out of this,” he added.

Boasting about his 130-plus speed despite 12 injuries, Sreesanth tried to divulge the truth behind that infamous over that raised eyebrows, “It was supposed to be one over and 14-plus runs. I bowled four balls for five runs. No no-ball, no wide and not a single slower ball in an IPL game. I was bowling at 130-plus after 12 surgeries on my toe.”

Sreesanth now on a comeback trail, is desperate to leave one last imprint before hanging up his boots, though going by his age 38), it seems too late.
