Sreesanth - Maverick, Eccentric and Temperamental

Sreesanth has managed to create more headlines than any other player in his eventful career. Born on February 6th 1983 in Kerala, Sreesanth initially wanted to be a leg spinner, but after creating ripples with his yorkers he soon gave up that thought and converted himself into a fast bowler. 


Sreesanth first picked up acclaim when he took a cap trap against Himachal Pradesh in a Ranji trophy diversion, the first occasion when it was accomplished by a Kerala bowler. He was soon chosen to play in the Challenger Trophy in October 2005 for India B and he expelled Sachin Tendulkar after over and again sledging him - which incited Sachin to purportedly let him know 'Never come that near me again'. He developed as the main wicket-taker in that arrangement and he was compensated with a choice to the Indian group to go up against the Lankans in the ODI arrangement that took after.

Sreesanth was involved in a spot-fixing scandal during the 6th edition of the IPL playing for Rajasthan Royals. The BCCI barred him from any form of cricket and he has not played competitive cricket since then. 

Outside of cricket, Sreesanth is a student of Psychology and is a breakdancer, he became a national champion when he was in his eighth standard. He has appeared in several TV shows where he has exhibited his dancing skills. 

The Supreme Court on Monday issued a notice to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on a petition filed by S Sreesanth challenging a Kerala High Court verdict that restored the life ban imposed on him. BCCI has been given four weeks to respond to the petition by Sreesanth.
