New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday sought a response from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) over a challenge to the lifetime ban imposed on fast bowler S. Sreesanth following allegations of involvement in a spot-fixing racket that surfaced in the 2013 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

The matter was brought before a bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra who sought BCCI’s response within four weeks. Sreesanth was present in court for the hearing.

Salman Khurshid, counsel for Sreesanth urged the court to grant an interim stay in his favour so that he may be allowed to play. No stay was granted at this stage.

The cricketer was granted interim relief by a single judge of the Karnataka high court which lifted the ban imposed on him on 7 August. The order was set aside by a division bench of the same court in October following which he has approached the Supreme Court.

In May 2013, three Rajasthan Royals players—Sreesanth, Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila —were arrested on spot-fixing charges.
