Thiruvananthapuram: Two officials from Kerala Cricket Association (KCA) will meet jailed cricketer S Sreesanth in Delhi on Monday, an official said.

"One of the officials, Sreejith Nair is a criminal lawyer by profession and Alappuzha district secretary of the KCA. The other represents the district (Ernakulam) from which Sreesanth hails," KCA secretary T.C. Mathew said.

The officials are on fact finding mission, as Sreesanth claimed that he has been trapped and is innocent. The visit comes after Kerala has dropped Sreesanth from the official advertisement for Kerala Lotteries.

His employer Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited has suspended him from his position in the organization as an Assistant Manager.

Sreesanth was picked up by Delhi Police May 16 from Mumbai, on allegations of spot fixing in the India Premier League tournament. He is presently locked up in Tihar jail.

Sreesanth, one of only two men from Kerala ever to have been on the national cricket team, has played in 27 Tests (87 wickets), 53 ODIs (75 wickets) and 10 T20s (7 wickets).
