S Sreesanth's associate, Eddie Gibbs, has said that the 34-year-old is willing to drag the BCCI to the Court of Arbitration for Sport for preventing him from playing cricket. The BCCI had imposed a life ban on Sreesanth after he allegedly engaged in spot-fixing during the sixth edition of the IPL.

"Sreesanth has also kept his legal options open for dragging the BCCI/ICC to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS),” Gibbs told the Deccan Chronicle.

"We are in talks with the sports specialist lawyers Harper Macleod LLP,” added Gibbs.

Gibbs had been the one to invite Sreesanth to represent the Glenrothes Cricket Club in Scotland. A New Delhi trial court had dropped all charges against the pacer in 2015, but the BCCI has been adamant that it will not lift the life ban.

Sreesanth is also planning to get a few Scottish players to his state to give them a taste of cricket in India so that they can comprehend how big the sport actually is in India. 

"I want to bring a couple of young Scottish players to my homeland Kerala and give them a taste of cricket. This will enable them to understand why this game is a religion in this country,” Sreesanth said.

"I have discussed this project with my associate (Eddie Gibbs) in Scotland and I am committed to it. I have seen the Scottish players in the World Cup in New Zealand and I am impressed with their talent, spirit, and dedication."
