India’s former fast bowler Sreesanth. After being named by Kerala in a 26-strong possibility list for the upcoming Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy T20 tournament, Sreesanth edged closer to a return to competitive cricket on Tuesday.
Alongside Sanju Samson, Sachin Baby, Jalaj Saxena, Robin Uthappa, and Basil Thampi, among others is the 37-year-old Sreesanth, who was suspended by the BCCI because of his suspected participation in spot-fixing in the IPL.
The start of the T20 tournament is scheduled for January 2.
His prohibition ended this year in September.
The pacer, who last represented India in 2011, will take part from 20 to 30 December in a preparatory camp to be held here, sources said.
Sreesanth, who was part of the victorious Indian teams in the 2007 World T20 and 2011 World Cup, was previously named in one of the squads for the Kerala Cricket Association’s local T20 tournament in Alappuzha on 17 December.
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a delayed domestic season and the commencement of the 2020-21 season will be marked by the T20 tournament.
