Sreesanth v Ponting.jpg

Indian fast bowler Sreesanth has had a face-off with Australian captain Ricky Ponting in todays ‘friendly’ warmup match for the Cricket World Cup.

In recent years Sreesanth has turned weird behaviour into an art form. In the latest installment, Sreesanth beat Ponting’s bat with a short ball and then went up for a massive appeal.

When his Bollywood special appeal was turned down he decided to get in Pontings face an indulge in some staring and batting advice.

Words were exchanged and Sreesanth walked away making an ‘L’ sign with his thumb and forefinger, as if to signify he thought Ponting was a ‘Loser’.

Sreesanth was once dumb enough to do a dance in front of South African fast bowler Andre Nel after he had hit Nel for six.

But the crowning glory that puts Sreesanth at the top of world crickets ‘annoying tree’ is for riling India team-mate Harbjajan Singh (the alledged annoying little weed himself) up so much in an IPL game that Singh gave him a slap in the face.

Cute lovable Sreesanth says he simply loves to show his emotions.

“I’m a very real person, not an actor,” he says.

“Maybe I could become a good actor. Though I am spiritual, I’m not sentimental.” Yeah got that Sreesanth but I thought you said you were not an actor. Now you are saying you could become a good actor.

But wait there is more. “I was national break dance champion when I was in the eighth grade,” he says. “I don’t really get time to dance now. I gave up dance for cricket”. That is not what Andre says.

For the record Australia got thumped, but maybe Sreesanth is the real loser.
