Puducherry scored 138 runs in their scheduled 20 overs with Ashish Rajiv. Jalaj Saxena of Kerala was the bowlers’ choice as he took three wickets while conceding just 13 runs.
Kerala beat the all-round batting performance by chasing a 10-run target. Captain Sanju Samson smashed 32 runs, while batsman Robin Uthappa scored 21 runs in 12 balls.
Sreesanth was banned by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in August 2013 for alleged spot-fixing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) along with his Rajasthan Royals teammates Ajit Chandila and Ankit Chavan.
However, last year, his lifetime ban was reduced to seven years, which expired in September. The Indian seamer was best viewed as he bowled in full flow and finished with figures of 1-29 on Monday.
