Making The Case For Sreesanth
"Left arm spinners cannot unclog your drains, teach your children or cure your diseases. But once in a while, the very best of them will bowl a ball that will bring an entire nation to its feet. And while there is no practical use in that, there is most certainly value."

The quote above is from Chinaman: The Legend of Pradeep Mathew, the debut cricket novel from the fine young Sri Lankan writer Shehan Karunatilaka.

What - or rather, who - those lines remind me of is an Indian bowler who cannot unclog your dreams, or teach your children how to behave; but he can sure as hell bowl the occasional ball (ask Jacques Kallis) or the occasional spell (ask South Africa) that can bring a nation to its feet.

That bowler is Shantakumaran Sreesanth.

Apart from Zaheer Khan, the Indian pace bowling cupboard makes Mother Hubbard's look chock-full. Given that, Sreesanth is by far the second most important member of the Indian pace attack; his potential as a match-winner cannot - should not - be underestimated.

Good share buddy.......
Yes quite true..... but at the same time he is the most unpredictable pace bowler we ever had. His inconsistency is still the problem at least in subcontinent. Though he proved to be dependable when he plays overseas like SA, or Australia.

One more general comment was, he gives some spark and flavor to the pace or bowling attack in some situations.. Smile

In conclusion, until we find some more pace talents, we have no other choice but to depend on him... Smile
Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.. for tomorrow never comes.. live today!!!
