Sreesanth:-The King Of Controversy?

Buzz around the world that Indian team got his new super gun in world cricket as Sreesanth, He is also nicknamed as Kerla Express. The Kerla express is mostly famous for his bad behavior and no of time he faced penalty and suspension, but he is not ready correct himself. Now a days due to his behavior, he is known as "The Controversy King" in Media.
what do you think Sresanth is ill-mannered or aggressive? As far as I concern, the behavior of Sreesanth is a part of aggression and killing sprite. His performance totally depends on his aggression. You see what happens when ever Sreesanth fights with any one, Cap town test is the greatest example in front of us, how his fight with Smith turn in to a boon for Indian team and he picked up 5 wicket haul and restricted South Africans in 362. 
According to TOI, Later S Sreesanth 'thanked' South African skipper Graeme Smith for 'waking him up' in the series, "Thanks to Smith, he woke me up. I was very quiet.. am happy he could speak to me. I was happy bowling from a shorter run-up and helping the team rather than take wickets. He told me 'you are not good enough.' I told him 'Ok, I'm good enough get you out."
Now tell me who is wrong, Smith and Sreesanth? How he behaves always their is a reason behind it. I think it's natural to see a fast bowler behaving like this.
As the mater of fact, Sreesanth is one of the best swing bowler in world cricket but only need of consistency and self control to become a world class bowler. I like him because of his killing sprite, which most of the cricketers lacking in world cricket. You see After leaving out of the Indian team for about a year and half, Sreesanth was called back to play the home Test series against Sri Lanka in November 2009. Sreesanth played the second Test in Kanpur and picked up five wickets in the first innings, which helped India win the match by an innings and 144 runs. Sreesath was awarded the Man of the Match for taking six wickets in the match.After the match, Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni praised him as one of the best bowlers of reverse swing.
Well done Sreesanth, Keep up the sprite.


  1. I was yesterday (D3) at Newlands and sat near the block that gave him stick a bit - nothing serious. He decided to give the middle finger (hand against his cap) to the spectators, then encourage them to go louder and make more noise and then went to complaint!! WTF is that? This is not what Indian cricket is about. I know we had our Andre Nel, but that still this does not condone his behaviour. South Africans have a lot of respect for your Indian team - this is because of your talent, passion and character. Sreesanth is failing on the latter.

  2. I am agree with you, Sreesanth is really difficult to handle. Indian Captain Dhoni given the same remark about Sreesanth.
    Cricket is for entertainment, I think we should enjoy every part of the game. Like a movie Hero and Villon works together so as well in cricket.
