When most of the players retire on the peak age of 37 years, from every format but there is one Indian Cricketer who fought against all odds and made a comeback at the age of 37 that is none other than Shanthakumaran Nair Sreesanth.
He has setting an example for everyone and the spark he carried has been shown in the recent running tournament. His comeback is also for his dream to play for the national team in the ICC World Cup 2023. He was sabotaged from every form of cricket in IPL-2013 by having allegations over spot fixing. His ban was imposed in September 2020, and afterwards this he took step in the cricket.
This was the comeback after seven long years. His first spell after seven years was much impressive for everyone to watch out. He bowled a four over span with conceding just 29 runs with taking a wicket. The bowling was extremely lethal and much economical.

Impressive Comeback from Sreesanth
Right now, domestic tournament is going and that is Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy where match was played between Kerala and Puducherry. Sreesanth was bowling for Kerala Team in the 3rd over. Puducherry opener Farid was on the strikers end. In the second delivery of the over, the vintage Kerala Express has just bowled a lethal delivery which rattled the off stump and dismissed him on just low score of 10 runs.
He was banned for the spot fixing which was carried out in IPL-2013 in the camp of Rajasthan Royals which eventually made him to leave cricketing world.

His first wicket after seven years seemed to be quite emotional and yes it will be a special moment for him to just nourish it.
Puducherry Team scored 138/6 in their 20 overs and coming to chase Kerala team with ease chased the target with two overs left on the board. They won the match by 6 wickets.
With this win, team will definitely look to promote more goof performance in the remaining tournament.
