Describing the life ban imposed on him by the BCCI as the biggest setback in his life, disgraced India pacer S Sreesanth on Saturday maintained he had not done any wrong and would prove his innocence in the spot-fixing scandal.
Stating that he felt very sad on hearing the BCCI's decision announced yesterday, Sreesanth said, "The BCCI action is the biggest setback in my life and I am disappointed. I will try to overcome the crisis and make a strong comeback."
Sreesanth said he did not know why he was being "framed" in this situation.
"I can tell that I have not done anything wrong," Sreesanth told reporters here.
The fast bowler said he was at a loss to understand why the BCCI took such a decision on this issue.
"The only consolation for me now is that I am at home, not in a jail," he said.
Sreesanth said he had been playing international cricket for the last nine years, but he never got any support from anyone.
"I did not get any support these years. I expected to get support this time, which did not come," he said.
