Claiming innocence and expressing faith in the judiciary, India Test pacer S Sreesanth, who was released on bail after being arrested for alleged involvement in the IPL spot-fixing scandal, on Tuesday said he is hopeful of making a comeback to the national side.

"I promise you I will never give up," Sreesanth, who is out on bail after spending 27 days in the Tihar Jail, said upon his return to his hometown.

"My dream obviously is to play cricket. All I want to do is to play cricket and get back into the team… It is a dream to play in the South African tour series. But I am not sure about it now," he told reporters soon after meeting his parents and relatives at nearby Tripunithura.

Despite being weary after his arrival from Delhi, Sreesanth said he was very happy to be back with his parents and said he would soon start training.
