S Sreesanth Wants To Play In The ICC Cricket World Cup 2023
The 37-year-old Indian pacer S Sreesanth has already revealed his dream to return to the Indian national cricket team in the near future. He has now wished to serve the national team in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 and retire from the game by winning the cup for the Indian team.
S Sreesanth was once a regular player of the national team. He was a member during India’s victory in the ICC World T20 2007 and ICC Cricket World Cup 2011, and in fact, he featured both the finals of those successful tournaments. But due to his inconsistent performances, he was removed from the national team. Then the spot-fixing allegation during the IPL 2013 has ended his career prematurely.
His life ban from the cricket has been now reduced to seven years, and Sreesanth will be eligible to play cricket from upcoming September.
Now I have become unrealistic: S Sreesanth
Recently, Sreesanth revealed that he was waiting to return to the national team for a long time and had realistic dreams. Now, he has set unrealistic dreams which are playing the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 and ending the career by winning this trophy. While he will be 41-year-old at that time, Sreesanth brought the examples of former Pakistan cricketer Misbah-ul-Haq, legendary Indian cricketers Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid (in IPL).
Sreesanth told Sportskeeda, “I have been waiting for my chance from so many years and tried to be realistic. But now I have become unrealistic, I have been setting unrealistic goals and they have started becoming realistic. My unrealistic goal is that I play the 2023 World Cup and win it for India, then I will retire. Misbah played till 42, Sachin Paaji played till 42, Rahul bhai played IPL till 42.”
India will host the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 between February-March 2023.
Sreesanth played 27 Tests, 53 ODIs and 10 T20Is where the right-arm pacer took 87, 75 and seven wickets respectively. He served last time for the Indian team in The Oval Test (against England) in August 2011. After the IPL 2013, he missed out the game due to the spot-fixing allegation.
