Thiruvananthapuram: Two officials from the 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 the Alappuzha district secretary of the KCA. The other represents the district (Ernakulam) from which Sreesanth hails," KCA secretary TC Mathew said.

The officials are on a fact-finding mission, as Sreesanth has claimed that he has been trapped and is innocent. The visit comes as Kerala has dropped Sreesanth from the official advertisement for Kerala Lotteries. His employer Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited has suspended him from his job as an assistant manager.
