Veteran coach S Sreesanth recently made his highly anticipated return to action with the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. The former Indian pacemaker returned to competition after more than seven years due to the ban imposed on him for his involvement in the 2013 IPL spot fixing scandal. And it didn’t take long for him to make the cut. headlines for all the wrong reasons.
He was criticized by some of the fans after dragging Mumbai youngster Yashasvi Jaiswal to the league game earlier this week. The incident took the cricket fraternity by surprise as several people criticized the veteran for trying to get under the young opener’s skin with his verbal bursts. One of those fans took to Twitter to criticize the stimulator and it all ended with a brilliant response from the bowler himself.
Calling on the stimulator for his behavior, the user tweeted: “Someone tells @ sreesanth36 that a long run and luge doesn’t make anyone a fast world class bowler. But getting hammered after sledding makes it clear that you’re more swagger than a bowler.
S Sreesanth noticed the tweet and was quick to respond, writing: “Thank you very much for the information … really appreciated, you took the time to write this.” I always give the best with every delivery, and it was good crushes and he’s very good and he’s going to keep improving, proud of the way he plays and God bless him and his family.
