Kerala cricketer Sachin Baby recalled the support he received from ‘Big Brother’, S Sreesanth, during tough times and also explained how the former Indian cricketer set new standards for the domestic team.
Sreesanth announced his retirement from all formats of the game earlier this year after he went unsold in the IPL 2022 mega auction. He is one of the very few players who were part of both the 2007 and 2011 World Cup-winning squads.
“He is a big brother for all of us in the Kerala team. He set the standards of not giving up at the age of 36. Anyone who is playing knows that if we are 36, then also we can play. He showed that.”
“He has really helped me to achieve all the things that I have achieved so far. Whenever I didn’t score, he used to call me and support me. For the last seven years also, we used to practice together. We used to train together, off-field or in the gym,” Baby told in a chat with Sportskeeda.

Furthermore, Baby revealed that Sreesanth is looking forward to playing in the Road Safety Series where he will be aiming to cross the 140kmph barrier.
“I am very happy that he came back and set some goals for the team. He did really well if you see. He was the highest wicket-taker in our team. Cricket is always there in him. Now that he is retired, I wish him all the best in his next innings.”
“I think he will be part of the Road Safety Series in June or July. He is preparing well for that. He is a man who never gives up. I think he will bowl around 140-plus because he is really fit,” he concluded.
