One of the first things Sreesanth said after the Kerala high court lifted the lifetime ban imposed on him by the BCCI was that he was "grateful to God". 

And that his first aim would be to get into the Kerala cricket team.  

PTI reported him as saying that he had started preparing for the game. 

And that the Kerala Cricket Association had said it would take a "positive" decision on Sreesanth's bid to play state cricket.

Elsewhere, news reports said that Sreesanth had been practising at a "small indoor net" at home. 

And that the 34-year-old believed he still had three to four years of cricket left in him. 

Sreesanth was banned from the game for life after he was charged with spot-fixing by the Delhi Police in 2013. 

A Delhi court had acquitted him of the charges in 2015 but the BCCI refused to lift the ban, which is when the cricketer approached the high court.
