S Sreesanth is bowling well in nets, he is unplayable: Sachin Baby
The time away from the cricket field has not changed Sreesanth. His bowling prowess still remains the same, albeit concerns over his match fitness still remains. However, Kerala batsman Sachin Baby claimed that he is bowling well, getting the line right and is still unplayable at the nets.
“He is really bowling well in the nets. The video has gone viral as well. Whenever he bowls to me, I tend to get out because of his pace and swing. He is still unplayable.
“We have to work on his match fitness. We are working hard on his bowling. He has been bowling really well in the nets, he is getting wickets in the nets. We are waiting for the rainy season to get over and get on the ground.”
The 36-year-old has played 27 Tests, 53 ODIs and 10 T20 Internationals for India, claiming 169 wickets in all. He last played for India back in 2011.
