Wanted to clear name before daughter googles it: Sreesanth

“I want my daughter to know me as a cricketer and not a terrorist when she googles my name,” said S Sreesanth after being exonerated of spot-fixing charges by a Delhi Court on Saturday.

“My daughter is three months old. When she grows old and googles my name, I want her to know me as a cricketer and not a terrorist. When I saw my photograph being flashed alongside Dawood Ibrahim, I was shocked. I wondered what have I done to myself to deserve this,” an emotional Sreesanth said as his two-year ordeal ended.

Sreesanth said, “My father had two heart attacks. He had an open-heart surgery. Obviously, it is connected to the stress that a father suffers when his son is sent to Tihar jail,” said the member of the 2007 World T20 and 2011 World Cup winning squad.
