While talking at an event the 33-year-old was quoted by the Peninsula as saying, “I hope the year 2017 is interesting. Maybe cricket is calling me back again,”“I have got a good offer from a Scottish First Division club side. (It) depends on (if) BCCI gives me permission or not,” he added.“As far as I remember, the ban for me was for not to play in BCCI tournaments and not to represent BCCI. Maybe, I will get an opportunity to play there. “If I can keep myself fit, which is very important in the cold conditions. When it comes to fitness, you need to be fit for play five days a week. I am looking forward to it,” Sreesanth said.
