'Sreesanth will never betray cricket'

Thiruvananthapuram, May 16: Shocked by the arrest of her son on the charges of spot fixing in the ongoing Indian Premier League, cricketer S Sreesanth's mother Savithridevi today said "my son will never betray cricket".

"I am hundred per cent sure that he will not do anything wrong. His innocence would be proved," Savithridevi told PTI.

She said she did not want to blame anybody until the details of the plot were out. "Now I just want to say that my son is not a person who runs after money. This is very clear since he has turned down many offers from the film world as he is totally devoted to cricket, which is his life. He will never betray cricket."

Earlier, Sreesanth's father Santhakumaran Nair had allegedly told a Television channel that his son was trapped by Indian captain MS Dhoni and Harbhajan Singh due to some personal grudge.

Sreesanth's brother-in-law Madhu Balakrishnan said that the pacer would never indulge in such an act and it was totally false. "He will be the last person to do such a thing," he said.
