Indian bowling in England over-marketed, says S Sreesanth

The controversial India pacer, S Sreesanth has admitted that this Indian bowling line up in the tour of England got more hype than they deserve.

Meanwhile, despite the Indian bowlers putting a great show, India lost the series 4-1 due to their inconsistency. The batsmen struggled to score runs regularly except their skipper Virat Kohli.

However, S Sreesanth believes that this bowling unit has got a lot of marketing which they don’t deserve.

I did follow the England series. I must say I was very disappointed with the bowling. The last series win was in 2007 which I was part of. I, RP Singh and Zaheer Khan were there. We saved a Test in Lord’s,” Sreesanth said.

The bowler from Kerala noted that he had more expectation from Ishant Sharma, who finished the series with 18 wickets. Sreesanth feels Ishant should have at least returned with 25 wickets from England.

I am not trying to say the 2007 attack was better. But Ishant has been the most experienced bowler and he should have finished with 25 wickets, not 18. I am not saying five wickets in an innings. But five wickets in a Test was needed, like two-plus three wickets in each innings,” S Sreesanth added.

The life ban has been reimposed

Confident of coming back

Sreesanth further said that he is sure of coming back into the competitive cricket. Furthermore, he also stated that he dreams of playing one official game before bidding farewell.

I have been keeping myself very busy with training. God has been kind to me. It is a matter of one order from the court which should allow me to play. The Kerala Cricket Association has been very supportive. The ban is yet to be lifted. Once that is lifted, I think I will be more active. I am 35, I think I have got another six-seven year,” S Sreesanth concluded.
