The BCCI has not made any comment on the ruling. "The court also observed that there was no material or evidence before disciplinary committee to conclude that I was guilty of the violation of the Anti Corruption Code formulated by the BCCI", he added.

Sreesanth had said he has started preparations to play the game and his aim was to find a place in the Kerala cricket team.

Having played together with Kumble for a long time in his career as captain of the side, Azharuddin defended the spinner's credentials whilst expressing his disappointment with the way things turned out for India's leading wicket-taker in Tests.

It was learnt that Edulji raised the issue of rewarding women's selectors for team's stellar show in the World Cup but BCCI's acting president CK Khanna suggested if women selectors were paid, then men should also be paid.

Azharrudin told reporters on Wednesday: "Sreesanth was one of the finest fast bowlers, but I think he was not handled properly".

On the 15-day window between worldwide assignments and the Indian Premier League (IPL), she said: "We are trying our best".

"I feel very sad for him". I am hoping this case is resolved at the earliest and we move ahead from it.

The 2013 IPL season was mired in controversy after police launched legal proceedings against several officials and three Rajasthan Royals players, including Sreesanth, for illegal betting and spot-fixing.

He also expects the BCCI to respect the decision by the Kerala High Court to overturn S Sreesanth's ban but admitted that the fast bowler will have to work really hard on his fitness and performances to work his way back up the ladder. The KCA said it would take a "positive" decision on Sreesanth's bid to play in state cricket.

"Today I'm feeling much better than how I felt when I got my maiden call-up to the Indian team", said Sreesanth, who was banned with fellow Rajasthan Royals players Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan. Even the biggest of criminals don't go through what I or my family went through.
