Kochi: Not many have the talent of S Sreesanth but the temperamental pacer is wasting himself by not being consistent and fit enough, says former India skipper Mohd Azharuddin.
“He has got the natural swing but I think his talent is totally wasted. I think he needs to understand that he has to deliver and remain fit. So I do not like to see him waste his talent,” Azharuddin told reporters.
“To be very honest, I think he should use his brain more. With due respect to him, I think he is a very good bowler. I think he is one of the few bowlers who can swing the ball,” he said.
Hoping that Sreesanth would take his comments in the right spirit, Azharuddin said the spunky bowler needs to work harder.
“He must not take it in a wrong way. I am saying all this only for his betterment. I think he needs to work hard as he is such a good bowler. Not many bowlers can swing the ball,” he said.
Sreesanth’s career has been marred by several disciplinary indiscretions and he has been in the firing line of the BCCI for losing his cool too often on the field.
