Sreesanth hopes 'bad phase' will end soon
Bhopal: Bhopal: Fast bowler Sreesanth, who has been banned for life due to his alleged involvement in the Indian Premier League's (IPL) spot-fixing scandal, hoped that this bad phase of his life would get over soon.
"I have not done anything wrong. Everybody faces bad times in life. This is my bad time and I hope it will end soon," Sreesanth who arrived here to take part in the wedding anniversary of his in-laws told reporters on Monday night.
Though Sreesanth initially tried to avoid the media, he answered a few questions.
He said that at present he is totally focussed on his married life and is happy with it.
Sreesanth said that he is planning to set up a cricket academy, but hasn't zeroed in on a location.
Terming Bhopal as a place full of natural beauty, he said that since now his family is here, he might set up a fitness centre in the city.
Sreesanth's wife Bhuvaneshwari was also present on the occasion.
The fast bowler was a member of the World Cup winning squad in 2011 and was allegedly involved in IPL's spot-fixing scandal, after which he was sent to jail.
Later, the Board of Cricket for Control in India's (BCCI) Disciplinary Committee also slapped a life ban on him.

More It is a day of celebration for all cricket fans across the world as master blaster Sachin Tendulkar was born on this day in 1973. It has been 6 long months since the little master's retirement. There is hardly anything left which this veteran hadn't achieved in his illustrious career. From being the highest run scorer in both forms of cricket, along with making 100 centuries or even being the first batsman who was given out by a third umpire, the list is endless. Almost every record has been in his kitty. Sachin is the role model for many and this man made it a point to exercise his franchise even on this special day.
