India fast bowler S Sreesanth, who made a comeback to domestic cricket last year, failed to get a buyer in the Indian Premier League auction. However, he took it in his stride and has continued to work hard on his bowling, in a bid to get noticed by franchises. With two more teams joining the auction pool ahead of IPL 2022 who knows perhaps the former World Cup-winning cricketer might get another chance to showcase his skill at the very stage from where he received a ban.
Remembering one of his iconic moments from his IPL career, the Kerala Express shared a Whatsapp status of him getting the better of former India cricketer MS Dhoni, who turned 40 on Wednesday. Sreesanth could be seen bowling a perfect yorker to get rid of the master finisher and then continuing one of his characteristic animated celebrations. The video of his status has surfaced on the internet.
Check out the video here:
Earlier, in a Facebook post dated July 3, 2020, Sreesanth had revealed why this was a special memory for him. The 38-year-old disclosed since he was coming back after an L2 stress fracture, it meant a lot to him. "Dhoni bhai completely surprised ..esp .me coming after a L2 stress fracture ..God is great..love bowling those yorkers," he had captioned this post.
It remains to be seen whether Sreesanth indeed manages to make a comeback in IPL. With age no longer on his side and franchisees looking to build a team for the future, it might need a few more of those Sreesanth special spells in domestic cricket before the franchises are forced to take a note.
