Sreesanth was trapped, say parents

Thiruvananthapuram: Reacting to the news of S. Sreesanth's arrest, his mother Savithri Devi Thursday said her son was trapped in the allegation of spot fixing in the on-going IPL.

"Dhoni and Harbhajan conspired to finish his cricketing career. The latter had executed this with the help of a deputy superintendent of police in Punjab. Dhoni had threatened him recently that he won't don the Indian cap again," his father Santhakumaran Nair said.

Sreesanth's brother-in-law Madhu Balakrishnan said the cricketer had been upset for the past many days and was seen crying. He added that Sreesanth told his parents that he was upset about not being allowed to play in some of the IPL matches.

"He is dead against match-fixing, and can never do anything like that. He told his parents that he was fully fit but was not being allowed to play. We are certain that he will do no wrong," said Balakrishnan, a popular playback singer.

Union Minister of State for Human Resource Development Shashi Tharoor said Sreesanth's arrest came as a big surprise for him.

"He is a hugely talented cricketer and, unless he is proved guilty, I don't want to pass a judgement on it," the Member of Parliament from Thiruvananthapuram told reporters at his office here.

Cricket administrator B.P. Ajith Kumar said there was a big conspiracy against Sreesanth's arrest in the case.

"In no way can a person like Sreesanth be party to what we are hearing now. I strongly feel that this is a trap. He was raring to return to the Indian cricket team. But now with this false case against him, it would be difficult for him to make a return. If the case lingers on for a few years then the age factor would be against him," said Ajith Kumar.

T.C. Mathew, secretary of the Kerala Cricket Association, said: "I won't believe this news. Sreesanth would never do such a thing."
