S Sreesanth’s lawyer Deepak Prakash maintains that the Rajasthan Royals pacer is innocent and was picked up wrongly by the police.

S Sreesanth“The evidence against Sreesanth is not substantial,” said Prakash.

“The towel tucked in Sreesanth’s trousers is mere coincidence.

"If you remember, it was a 4pm match and he would need a towel at that time (to wipe of the dew).

Also, if you look back at videos of past One-dayers, Sreesanth always has a towel tucked in his trousers,” he added in the pacer’s defence.

Prakash also said he had a word with Sree, who rejected the spot-fixing claims.

Former India pacer Sreesanth and his Rajasthan Royals teammates Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan were arrested by the Delhi Police on Thursday on charges of spot-fixing during the ongoing IPL. The trio were later remanded to police custoday for five days.
