I bowl with fire in belly: SreesanthMarch 13th, 2008 - 7:19 pm ICT by admin
Dubai, March 13 (IANS) Indian pacer Santhakumaran Sreesanth keeps coming back at the batsmen with intensity and he says he relishes challenging the reputation of his opponents. “It does not matter whether the batsman is Andrew Symonds or anyone else. I love bowling with fire especially against someone who challenges me. I don’t like to be in a comfort zone,” said Sreesanth.
“Charging in to bowl is not easy and it hardly matters who the batsman is at the receiving end. For me he is just another guy with a helmet,” Sreesanth was quoted as saying in Gulf News.
Sreesanth says he has been aggressive right from his childhood.
“When I was a kid, I never used to get to bat or bowl. So whenever I got my hand on the ball, I used to bowl aggressively.
“Even when I played with my brother my aim was to bowl faster than him. Aggressiveness comes naturally to me.”
Sreesanth, though, said he controlled himself a lot during the series against Australia.
“This is the first time I’ve played cool. I think it has a lot to do with the Ayurvedic treatment that I underwent after my recent injury. I had to do meditation on a regular basis; that really calmed me,” he said.
“Whenever I felt like saying something I controlled myself and did all my talking as I walked back to my run up,” he added.
