Kochi: Cricketer S Sreesanth's parents could not find enough words to express their elation as a Delhi court dropped all spot-fixing charges levelled against their son.
"Thank God. Our prayers are answered. He (Almighty) is witness to everything. We thank all those who worked to prove his innocence," Sreesanth's father Santhakumaran Nair said, reacting to court verdict discharging all 16 accused in IPL spot fixing case.
All the 36 accused persons, including Sreesanth, were on Saturday discharged in the spot fixing case.
"We thank all those who prayed for our son. We were all tensed after Court reserved order on plea. We were all praying for him," Sreesanth's mother Savitri Devi said.
Kerala Cricket Association president T C Mathew, who is also BCCI Vice President, said the state cricket body would do everything possible to ensure re-entry of Sreesanth into mainstream cricket.
He said he would seek all possibilities to revoke the ban imposed on Sreesanth by BCCI.
