Kochi (Agencies): Bailed Indian speedster, S.Sreesanth, is happy to be back and said on Wednesday that he wanted to forget the time spent in prison. Post-breakfast, a weary-looking Sreesanth said that he was happy to have homemade food with his family. "I shall not stop training, will begin soon. I have had good food after 27 days. I would like to forget the 27 days," said Sreesanth. "I have great faith in the Indian judiciary. Now, the trial will start. I shall wait patiently," he added. Earlier, Sreesanth along with Ankeet Chavan and 17 others was released on bail from, Tihar Jail, after spending 26 days behind bars, after being accused of spot-fixing in Indian Premier League (IPL). However, the court has asked them to surrender their passports, as they are not allowed to leave the country. Earlier, Delhi police had invoked the provisions of Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act, (MCOCA) against Sreesanth and other accused for their alleged nexus with the underworld in the spot fixing case. The Indian pacer and former Test player, landed in his hometown of Kochi in Kerala to a rousing welcome. His fans greeted Sreesanth with warmth and supported their local hero. Chavan thanks judiciary Released on bail after spending 27 days in jail, cricketer Ankeet Chavan, who was arrested for alleged involvement in the IPL spot-fixing scandal, on Wednesday, hoped he would not be denied justice by the judiciary. "I am just hoping for the judiciary to make the right decision," Chavan said. Rajasthan Royals cricketers Chavan and S Sreesanth were yesterday released from Tihar jail along with 17 other accused. All of them were granted bail by a Delhi court. The court had also censured Delhi police for slapping MCOCA on the cricketers and other accused. The 27-year-old Chavan, an off-spinner, was naturally relieved to have walked out of jail. "I am thankful to the judiciary. I am happy and thankful to my family and all my friends who stood by me in tough times," he said. The two cricketers, along with another Rajasthan Royals teammate Ajit Chandila, were arrested on May 16 along with 11 bookies. The Delhi police charged them under the Indian Penal Code Section 420 and 120B, which deal with fraud, cheating and criminal conspiracy. Chavan was earlier released on bail in the first week of this month to get married to his longtime friend Neha Sambari.
