"With the domestic season around the corner, KCA would also like to support him and provide an opportunity to train/practice in the pre-season preparatory camps and selection trials at the earliest instance,subject to clearance from the Commitee of Administrators/BCCI," KCA said in a release.

The Kerala High Court had on Monday lifted the life ban imposed on him by BCCI in the wake of the scandal, saying there was no incriminating evidence to pinpoint his involvement in match fixing.

Justice A Muhamed Mustaque had also set aside all proceedings against Sreesanth initiated by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

Sreesanth had said he has started preparations to play the game and his aim was to find a place in the Kerala cricket team.

The KCA said it would take a "positive" decision on Sreesanth's bid to play in state cricket.
