ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsAfter nearly a month of public humiliation and hate speeches by cricketers and fans alike, which eventually led to massive self-loathing by Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul for their juvenile comments at Bollywood director and actor Karan Johar's talkshow, Koffee With Karan, the Board of Cricket Control in India or BCCI's Committee of Administration, has finally decided to lift the ban on the young stars of the Indian cricket team on Thursday. © Instagram "The Committee of Administrators ("CoA") had, by emails dated 11.01.2019, and in exercise of Rule 41(6) of the Constitution of BCCI, suspended Mr. Hardik Pandya and Mr. K.L. Rahul in view of the allegations of misconduct against them, pending adjudication of the allegations under Rule 46 of the approved BCCI Constitution," the CoA said in a press release. "Since the adjudication of all allegations of misconduct against any cricketer registered with, inter alia, the BCCI is required to be undertaken by the BCCI Ombudsman, whose appointment is pending directions of the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India, the CoA is the of the view that the interim suspension orders dated 11.01.2019 should be presently lifted with immediate effect. "The above matter and decision has been taken with the concurrence of the Learned Amicus Curiae, Mr. P.S. Narasimha. In view of the above, the suspension orders dated 11.01.2019 is immediately lifted pending appointment and adjudication of the allegations by the BCCI Ombudsman," the release said. With the ban now lifted, pacer Hardik Pandya has now been asked to join the Men in Blue for the ongoing ODI series in New Zealand which India lead 1-0 following a brilliant bowling attack by Mohammed Shami and Kuldeep Yadav.

DETAILS â¬ï¸https://t.co/5MQdubt3w8 pic.twitter.com/nR3nd1T9RY — ICC (@ICC) January 25, 2019 KL Rahul, who was going through a major struggle on the crease even before the ban took place, during the Border-Gavaskar Test series in Australia, has also been given the opportunity to regain his confidence by joining Rishabh Pant in the India A squad, scheduled to take on the England Lions in a three-game one-dayers in Trivandrum. Karan Johar on the other hand showed his relief upon hearing the fortunate news for the two of India's finest. "I am so happy to hear that the ban has been lifted. I am so relieved and grateful. They deserved another chance. I am glad that the Board has given them this chance," Johar expressed as reported by The Times of India. Whatever the duo said during the show was wrong, there are no two ways about it but, they have paid for more than what they had bargained for during their banned-stint in India. What is of essence is the fact that both Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul are exceptional cricketers and their presence in the Indian roster for the upcoming 2019 ICC World Cup may be crucial.
Sreesanth Promises To Give The Young Cricketers A 'Run For Their Money' If His Ban Is Lifted
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsFormer World Twenty20 champion and cricketer, Shanthakumaran Sreesanth, is convinced that if his ban from playing cricket is lifted and he gets to play even for a period as short as six months, he is going to give the new generation “a run for their money.” The Bigg Boss season 12's runner-up believes that the last 105 days inside the reality show's house was crucial for him to return to his original self that he had lost touch with when the 35-year-old was accused of spot-fixing and was sentenced a lifetime ban from playing the sport by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The fast-medium-pace bowler was arrested on being found guilty of corruption and spot-fixing in an internal inquiry held by BCCI's Anti-Corruption and Security Unit led by Ravi Sawani, back in 2013 during the sixth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The then Rajasthan Royals player had confessed of the crime but later in a letter to the Board expressed that his confession to the police was under duress. “Under the threat of arrest of my close relatives a statement was forcibly taken in the manner directed by the police,” he wrote in the letter. “There is no confession recorded by me willingly to the police. The police have mentally and physically harassed me and obtained signed statements.” View this post on Instagram #ThrowBackThursday #Mentor #Senior #Guru #SachinTendulkar ! A post shared by Sree Santh (@sreesanthnair36) on Jun 29, 2017 at 4:35am PDT Sreesanth had filed a petition early in 2018, seeking response from the authorities as he moved to the Supreme Court to challenge the Kerala High Court's verdict to stay the ban. BCCI authorities stuck to their former stance and replied that they will not compromise with corruption. In 2017, Videos of Sreesanth converting his newly constructed house into a practice arena went viral. “I totally deserve a chance to play club cricket, so that I at least get to prove my fitness levels and play for the Kerala cricket team,” he said in an interview with The Times of India. “People who are guilty and are proven so, are playing international cricket. And here I am telling my sad story, which hurts.” Last year, Sreesanth's advocate to the Supreme Court, Salman Khurshid told the judiciary that his client has multiple offers from various cricket clubs of the United Kingdom but will not be able to play if the ban was not lifted. “Life sentence for a criminal is for 14 years, but unfortunately in cricket, the life ban given to me is till my last breath and it really hurts,” Sreesanth told TOI.
