Kochi: Former India pacer S Sreesanth, arrested for his role in alleged spot fixing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and released from jail on Tuesday, arrived here to a tumultuous welcome from hundreds of fans who were waiting at the Kochi airport since early Wednesday.
A battery of journalists, press photographers and TV cameramen were seen jostling for space as soon as Sreesanth, who was released from Delhi's Tihar Jail on Tuesday night, arrived in the airport's lobby around 9.15 a.m.
"I am confident that I will come clean. I am delighted that I am back here. I have done no wrong. I am overwhelmed by the support I got here. I will now spend time with my parents," Sreesanth said.
