S Sreesanth may be back at home, relieved after the recent events that have seen him in police custody for 27 days — but the feeling of being free, at least for the time being, won't be forgotten.

"I don’t want to forget about this episode. It taught me a lot of things,” he told the media at a press conference.

Putting up a sincere face, he also said: "I always played the game with heart and soul. I totally believe in India’s judiciary system. I will surely abide by the law of land."

While the law will take its course in the future, Sreesanth is looking forward to getting back to cricket. But there is something else on his mind too.

"If I can, one day I want to make a movie on what I went through over the past month. All I want to do is play cricket. I wanted to go to South Africa to play the Test series and I had worked so hard to make a comeback after my injury. In my last game (IPL) I had bowled around 145 kmph. Now, I need to start from scratch again," Sreesanth was quoted as saying in an Indian Express report.

He also said that he was not able to sleep well over the last 27 days and that he would wake up with bad dreams at night. But apart from the nightmares, Sreesanth also said that some of the stories he heard from the jail inmates were heartbreaking and considered himself lucky compared to their suffering.

He also expressed his wish to play at the 2015 World Cup.
