Sreesanth returns to Red Ball Cricket after nine years at Ranji Trophy 2022 Sung Emotional Song after going unsold at IPL Auction 2022
S Sreesanth, a member of the 2007 T20 World Champions and 2011 ODI World Champions Indian team, has returned to red ball cricket after a long spell. Sreesanth last played a red ball game for Rest of India against Mumbai in February 2013. After that, Sreesanth now took the field against Meghalaya in Ranji Trophy 2022 with Kerala.
S Sreesanth made a splendid start against Meghalaya in the first game of Ranji 2022. He led Kerala’s bowling attack in this game and started first. The entire Meghalaya team was down to 148 runs ahead of the Kerala bowlers in the first innings. Sreesanth kicked two first overs for 11.4 overs and also took two wickets for 40 runs.
Last year he returned to the cricket ground after getting a good shot in IPL’s spot repair case. He was also seen leading Kerala in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy T20 2021 tournament and Vijay Hazare Trophy 2021 of 50 over format. But for the first time after his return, Sreesanth landed today to play the red ball format.
Shanthakumaran Sreesanth made his test debut for India on March 1, 2006 against England. Earlier in October 2005, he made his ODI debut against Sri Lanka. In December 2006, he also had the opportunity to play the first T20 for India against South Africa. Sreesanth made his first class and List A debut in 2002-03.
Sreesanth played his first IPL game for the Punjab Kings in the league’s debut season. He was last seen playing for Rajasthan Royals in 2013. After that, he was banned after his name surfaced during a spot-fixing. But that ban was lifted by the court last year and he got a clean mark in this case.
Spilling out the pain after not being auctioned IPL
Sreesanth recently shared a video of himself singing an emotional song on social media after his name did not feature in the mega auction for IPL 2022. In this video, bowlers from India sang the song “Ruk Jaana Nahi Tu Kahin Haar Ke…”. He wrote in his caption that I will always be grateful and always keep moving forward. Lots of love to you all. Om Namah Shivay.
Significantly, S Sreesanth who won 169 international wickets for India was named in the list of 590 players finalized for the IPL auction. But the name of Sreesanth, who won 40 wickets in 44 IPL matches, did not come up for auction. In the end, it remained unsold. He represented Punjab Kings, Rajasthan Royals and Kochi Tuskers Kerala at the IPL.
