Hey Indian cricket lovers.. As has been the case time and again, Sreesanth has proved that he is as effective a fast bowler as he is should be to be in the team. What if he has a knack of doing his particular flashy antics, they are not a problem as long as he is able to perform. What is more important is that India should groom more bowlers. I think Sreesanth should be used more in test than any other format. what you think please share your view...

I think Sreesanth should get chance in all format.He is very good bowler.His length is good and can give very good fast yorker. He has pace too and bounce also. But its competitive for him to get chance in team India as we know team India has Zaheer,Ishannth,Praveen,Neherea.All of them are in good form.So,its really difficult to get chance as a fast bowler in best 11.But its good news for India and good shine is that they are getting quality bowlers.

Nehra is more injured and a good one day bowler not good for tests. Praveen has proved his worht in the team now..Lets see how far he goes. Zaheer is ageing and gets injured regularly. We need strong youngsters to come up who can bowl well and quick not express.

well,we are now having some quite bowlers.But we need more bowlers in coming future.We saw lots of talented pace bowler in IPL.They should also get chance in team with senior bowler,then they will learn from them and it will be good sign for our team.

Yes Sreesanth is a good bowler and many time he proved that but one shadow that cover him is the Childish behaviour and much excessive aggrestion. So for his selection is concern i think he can selected only in the condtion where the ball have little swing from pitch other wise he is effect less.

Sreeshanth is a good bowler but he's too agresive like Ganguly, I like those charcters whose aggressive in the field.

Sreesanth is definately a good bowler and on a given day can wreck the opposition. The only problem he faces is that he is not consistent and that is one of the reasons why is not amongst the starting eleven. He gives his 100% when he is bowling but at times he tries to bowl too fast and his line is not correct. He is all over the place and gets taken for runs. If he can only calm himself down and stick to the basics, then he will be a good bowler and will be seem often in the team. As there is so much of competition in the Indian side, consistency is the key to retaining your place and an ordinary performance can see you sitting on the bench..

Sreesanth is definitely a good bowler although not in the same class as Zaheer. He is particularly effective on fast bouncy pitches like that of South Africa or Australia. He has performed very well against South Africa during 2 tours he has made to that country. He could always make it to the Indian team based on his cricket skills but at time he has to be out of the team because of the matters other than the cricket. He frustrates his captain and selectors because of his peculiar behavior on and off the field.
