Indian pacer S Sreesanth who is allegedly involved in spot-fixing scandal that rocked the IPL last month said he is hopeful of making a comeback to the national side. Sreesanth who was released on bail on Tuesday claimed innocence and expressed faith in the judiciary "I promise you I will never give up," Sreesanth, who is out on bail after spending 27 days in the Tihar Jail, said upon his return to his hometown. "My dream obviously is to play cricket. All I want to do is to play cricket and get back into the team... It is a dream to play in the South African tour series. But I am not sure about it now," he told reporters soon after meeting his parents and relatives. Despite being weary after his arrival from Delhi Sreesanth said he was very happy to be back with his parents and said he would soon start training. Asked if he had been 'trapped' in the case, Sreesanth said, "I have done no wrong. The arrest could be part of a conspiracy. It will soon come out. I am confident good will happen." On his experience in Tihar Jail, the pacer said he does not wish to explain anything. "All I can say is that I love this game. I have given the very best from the day one I played this game. You must trust me. I totally believe in judiciary. I am waiting for everything to be sorted out. I will surely like to explain everything," he said. Sreesanth said he got full support of the cricketing fraternity. "Everybody was messaging. Thanks to them, thanks to Rajasthan Royals, BCCI, my family, friends, fans, media. I have no complaints against anybody. Everybody was doing their duty. I have no complaints against anyone," he said. "Whatever has happened, has happened for a reason. I am happy to be home. Please pray for me. I promise not to give up," Sreesanth said. He declined to reply when asked to comment on Delhi Police plans to file an appeal against his bail.
