Former Indian pacer S Sreesanth is preparing to return to the world of cricket as the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on September 13. He eyes to get into the Kerala cricket team for the forthcoming season.

He is returning to cricket after a seven-year suspension by the BCCI in 2013 while he was playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) for Rajasthan Royals.

In an interview to a Malayalam news channel, Sreesanth said that he was keen to return to domestic cricket as a debutant to start a new innings.

Kerala coach Tinu Yohannan said that the 37-year-old pacer expressed his interest to play but it would depend on his form and fitness, reported Times News.

The pacer was suspended from cricket after allegations of his involvement in the 2013 IPL spot-fixing scandal.

"I'm completely free of any charges nd anything nd now gonna represent the sport I love the most.will give my very best to every ball I ball even (if) it's just practice," Sreesanth had tweeted on Friday, two days before the BCCI lifted his ban.

"Just have another 5 to 7 years max to give it all I've got nd I will give the very best to any team I play," he said.

Sreesanth is also seeking opportunities to play league matches in Australia and New Zealand and he expects that permission will be granted to play abroad after the lifting of the bank, reported Malayala Manorama.

He said that the Kerala Cricket Association made it clear that he would be included in the Kerala Ranji team if he proved his fitness.
