When a jackal pretends to be a tiger, a scene appears, which creates many funny tragedies. Sreesanth of India is such a jackal. His grotesque body structure, hospitalized bowling action, average performances, and pretension-rich aggression only embarrass the Indian fans within and outside the cricket grounds across the globe.
When you know that your case is not convincing and strong, you start flailing your arms and more cheaper ones start abusing the opponent. If you have quality and will and talent, you never abuse the opponents, rather you show sportsman spirit with a big heart.
Sreesanth is an average bowler, but there are many average bowlers in all the teams, but not all of them show the cheap arrogance he shows in the field. Even Andre Nel of South Africa has got some semblance of manners, when it comes to bowl in the field.
In a recent cheap fiasco, after writing a letter to God, Sreesanth hurled a nasty beamer on Kevin Pietersen. He also indulged in a body barge with England captain Michael Vaughan. He also showed his gimcrack profile myriad number of times. His on-field behavior during the second Test against England at Trent Bridge, was a vivid example of his meretricious playing nature.
Shanthakumaran Sreesanth a.k.a Gapu started his test career on Mar 1-5, 2006 at Nagpur v England and he started his ODI career on Oct 25, 2005 by playing against Sri Lanka at Nagpur. His bowling average in test is 29 and economy is 3.50, while his ODI average is 35 with an economy of 5.66. His poor averages and lack of astounding performances make him adopt fake aggressive gestures.
In December 2006, Sreesanth showed a disrespectful behavior towards Hashim Amla of South Africa and fined 30% of his match fee. Now he has been fined half his match fee for breaching clause 2.4 of the ICC Code of Conduct which relates to “inappropriate and deliberate physical contact between players in the course of play” during the fourth day of the second Test at Trent Bridge. Ranjan Madugalle fined him 50% of the match fee. Sreesanth body-barged the English captain and then abused him verbally. India needs to leash this not-so-pleasant bowler.More on:Andre Nel, India, Kevin Pietersen, Michael Vaughan, South Africa, Sreesanth, Sri Lanka
