Sreesanth was recently denied the NOC to play in the Scotland Cricket league. In 2015, a Delhi court had exonerated Sreesanth and two other players in the case registered by the Delhi Police which invoked the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) after he was arrested for spot fixing in the 2013 edition of the Indian Premier League.

With a change in the guard at the BCCI and Rai, an IAS officer who has served in Kerala , Sreesanth expects to persuade the COA head to look into the injustice meted out to him. Sreesanth is determined that if this attempt fails too, he will have no other alternative but to seek judicial intervention for lifting the ban on him.

On account of the life ban, the pacer cannot play even league cricket nor get access to practice at any of the cricket grounds where the BCCI or state associations have a stake.
