Sreesanth is a wicket taking bowler. He has to be disciplined to avoid giving noballs, wides, half volleys and width to batsmen in general to be lethal. It's no use bowling couple of good deliveries and letting the batsman free with other 4 generous offerings. Legendary kapil made sure he never bowled no balls even during net practice. I feel if he just learns to "control" in general, he can achieve much greater success than now. And yes, he has to be encouraged and groomed and his self confidence respected.

I felt sreesanth has been trying too hard to get wickets. I also he was unlucky as sitter was dropped on his ball which affected his morale. But if he bowls with good rhythm and confidence like he did in SA series he can help india win big matches. He has such good wrist postion and ball comes straight and way he got Amla with beauty. I feel captain and team should encourage him to do well and not be defensive b'coz that wont' help team as in ODIs as he is wicket taker & if he is good form & has confidence & experience he will surely give away less runs.

Ok, it is not that easy to check runs in flat pitches, but if anyone can learn and apply some tricks to achieve that, it will help team India a lot. But again we have to wait and see how far effective it is.

No I don't think so Sreesanth is still trying to do lots of experiments when ever he comes to bowl rather than concentrating on a good line and length.He could afford such things if he could bowl at good pace.He lacks pace so it becomes easy to score of him especially when he tries to bowl bouncers he gets hit for boundaries.He should learn to deceive the batsman with change of pace and bowl good yorkors to do well on flat wickets at which I think he is not so comfortable.

i dont think so as he has to learn to control the line and length , for me he is like bret lee ,who is more concerned to bowl fast and bouncy the opposition out rather than thinking about the runs concedded by him , i think sreesanth is more suited for test cricket but in one day u need to have line and length as anything off the radar the batsmen just smack that thing
