During an Elite Group E match of the ongoing 12th season of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy between Kerala and Puducherry in Mumbai, Kerala fast bowler S. Sreesanth returned to competitive cricket after an nearly eight-year gap. Sreesanth, who was named in the Kerala squad for the showpiece event last month, bagged his first wicket in seven years as he announced his return to competitive cricket in style. In the match against Puducherry, Sreesanth in the fourth over moved the ball away from the right-handed batsman which then dismantled the stumps to reduce the side to 26/2.

Having tried his hands across multiple fields over the years, Sreesanth finally became eligible to play BCCI-affiliated cricket in September last year.

After winning the toss, Puducherry elected to bat and put up a respectable score of 138 for six in 20 overs. The Indian seamer was seen in the best of form as he bowled in full flow and finished with figures of 1-29 on Monday.

M Prasidh was the wrecker-in-chief who took three wickets by conceding 34 runs, whereas Mithun A Suchith J and Gowtham K bagged two wickets each by conceding 24, 17 and 13 runs respectively and Ronit More clinched one wicket, giving 18 runs for Karnataka.

Previous year in November, Sreesanth had expressed his excitement for KCA President's Cup T20 tournament and thanked Kerala Cricket Association (KCA) and selectors for giving him the opportunity. "I am looking forward to the tournament, it is going to be an fantastic President's Cup", Sreesanth had told ANI.
