“I was training at that time, my wife messaged me, I didn’t check it at that time. Later, when I was in my car, I got a voice mail from my wife and I thought it was ‘mazak’. When I heard different voice mails, I got to know it was true, many were circulating his pictures on social media,” he said in a Live Instagram session with Crictracker.

Luckily, no one clicked me going to jail or coming out of jail. Luckily, my kids will not see such pictures. I felt sad on that day (Sushant’s demise day),” said the 37-year-old.
During the session, the right-arm pacer also said how things took a downward slide after he found himself in the middle of a spot-fixing scandal in 2013 in the cash-rich Indian Premier League.
“If you look at my life, it was a fraction of second, it was the after-match party, I was taken to the terrorist ward, I felt I was being made ‘Bakra’. For 12 days, it was a torture for me for 16-17 hours per day. I was always thinking about my house and family at that time. After a few days, my elder brother came to visit me and then I got to know that my family was fine. My family members motivated me and were really behind me,” Sreesanth said.
