Would Have Loved To Play Against Aussies, Says S Sreesanth
With the bowlers struggling to run through the Australian batting lineup in the ongoing Test at Bengaluru, discarded fast-bowler S Sreesanth have expressed his desire of bowling on the M Chinnaswamy pitch.
The Bengaluru track was providing ample assists to pacers and Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav bowled their heart out but without much success. India’s pace duo mixed up their lengths beautifully and kept the pressure up with some relentless bowling throughout the day. However, they managed to pick up one wicket apiece and seeing the way the pitch has behaved so far, Sreesanth could not stop himself from expressing his desire of bowling on it.
The Kerela bowler is currently involved in a tussle with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to revoke the life ban imposed on him by the disciplinary committee of the cricket body. The 34-year-old, who was banned for life by the BCCI’s disciplinary committee in September 2013, was cleared of all charges by a Delhi trial court in 2015 due to insufficient evidence. However, the BCCI has not lifted the ban since their decision was independent to any criminal proceeding and was based on its independent disciplinary action. And with the BCCI not willing to lift the ban, the tainted bowler has moved the Kerela high court.
Now only time will tell how does his career pan out but one thing is for sure that the right-arm pacer is desperate to make a comeback to the cricket field.
Posting a picture of the 2010 Test between India and Australia at Bangalore, he tweeted:
