An angry S Sreesanth on Friday lashed out at the BCCI and vowed to make a competitive comeback.

Although the Kerala High Court gave a clean chit to Sreesanth, the board has decided to appeal against the lifting of the life ban on the tainted pacer.

"@bcci I'm not begging, I'm asking to give my livelihood back .its my right. U guys are not above God. I will play again.." an angry Sreesanth wrote on his Twitter page.

Sreesanth was banned for life by the BCCI for his alleged role in the IPL spot-fixing in 2013. Last Monday, a single judge bench of the Kerala High Court had passed an order that the bowler's life ban be lifted.

However, the BCCI is firm on its stand that they will not allow the speedster to make an immediate comeback.

Sreesanth has played 27 Tests, 53 ODIs and 10 T20 internationals for India with his last international appearance being in August 2011.

Bollywood Debut

Despite making claims that he will be making a strong comeback, Sreesanth is all set for his Bollywood debut in Aksar 2.

"Thankful to God for all the good things in life. I am so glad to be part of Aksar2 and I’m very confident it will be appreciated by the audience. A big thank you to all those who supported me during the worst phase of my cricketing career as well as now since the ban against me playing the game again has been lifted, I believe there are many opportunities in store. Need all the love, support and encouragement always," he said.

The BCCI might have closed the doors, but Bollywood has welcomed the tainted cricketer.
