Indian cricketer S Sreesanth, who is fighting a lifetime ban imposed by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) following the IPL 2013 spot-fixing and betting scandal, is simultaneously consolidating his position in the moving industry.

The 34-year-old right-arm pacer, who has stayed away from cricket ever since that scandal broke out, is currently gearing up for the release of his new film titled ‘Team 5’, in which he will be seen as a bike racer.

Sreesanth had made his debut in the film ‘Big Picture’ in 2015 and went on to play a negative character in Pooja Bhatt’s film ‘Cabaret’ later on. The upcoming film ‘Team 5’ will be Sreesanth’s third film.
