Indian pacer S Sreesanth has finally ended his controversial cricketing career and has announced retirement from all forms of cricket.
Indian cricketer S Sreesanth on Wednesday announced his retirement from Indian domestic cricket. Announcing the development, Sreesanth said he is retiring from the Indian domestic (first class and all formats) cricket. Sreesanth’s announcement also invited a lot of reactions on Twitter.
Ever since he bid adieu the cricket, many cricket fans took to social media to send him good wishes for his service to the Indian team.
This announcement brings the curtain down on a career that had just recently restarted after he overturned a life ban from the sport for his involvement in the 2013 IPL spot-fixing scandal. He was one of three Rajasthan Royals players to be punished, but in 2019, the Supreme Court set his sentence aside, which prompted the BCCI to reduce his ban to seven years, a period that would end by September 2020.
That made him eligible to play state cricket once again, and he returned in January 2021 as part of the Kerala T20 squad. He played most of the white-ball games last season, but has announced his retirement just one first-class game into 2021-22.
For the next generation of cricketers..I have chosen to end my first class cricket career. This decision is mine alone, and although I know this will not bring me happiness, it is the right and honorable action to take at this time in my life. I ve cherished every moment .❤️🏏🇮🇳— Sreesanth (@sreesanth36) March 9, 2022

Reacting to his retirement, “All the best for the future endeavors Bhai. All-time Favourite bowlers — Past, Present, and Future. Will miss your presence in the cricket ground.”
A user namely Manish Bhatt said, “If someone makes a mistake then he can be forgiven once but BCCI did not let him get the chance even far away, he worked very hard, maybe he could play for Indian again but Alas, Sreesanth lost today, my best wishes for future.”
