National Cricket Academy Chairman and president of Kerala Cricket Association (KCA), T C Mathew today said he is planning to take up the matter of banned pacer S Sreesanth with senior BCCI member Arun Jaitley.

Fielding questions at a meet-the-press here, Mathew said he would meet Sreesanth and his lawyer soon to discuss further proceedings in the case.

"When an issue like spot fixing arises, the BCCI can act like this way only. The International Cricket Association have issued strong guidelines on such matters. On its part, the KCA could not go beyond the decisions of BCCI disciplinary committee which is the ultimate body," Mathew said.

"Still we have offered our support to Sreesanth. I will meet Sreesanth and his lawyer soon and discuss further steps to be taken in the matter. I am planning to take up the matter with Arun Jaitley, who is member of the BCCI, soon.

"The action against Sreesanth was taken on the basis of an internal inquiry by BCCI. The same stand was taken even against former skipper Mohammed Azharuddin. But we can put more pressure on behalf of Sreesanth," he said.

Though KCA had given him the permission to practise at the International Stadium in Kochi, the player was yet to begin it, he said.
