Sreesanth, the Indian fast bowler was recently involved in a live session with his fans on the Helo App. He looked pretty brilliant with his crispy answers to the questions. During the interaction, he picked the cricketers who have the ability to smack triple ton in One Day International format.
In a sport like cricket, everything is possible for a player irrespective of the specialism he’s known for. Earlier, scoring a double ton in an ODI looked like an impossible thing but Sachin Tendulkar, the former Indian batsman achieved that milestone back in 2010 against South Africa and made that thing realistically possible.
Afterwards, many international players managed to score a double in an ODI inning like Rohit Sharma (208*, 209 and 264), Martin Guptill (237*), Virender Sehwag (219) and others. Now, everyone’s eyes are set on which player will come and smack a triple century in the 50-over format.
Sreesanth picks his favourites who can achieve the impossible-looking milestone
In live interaction on Helo App with a journalist, he was posed with same question. He asked the Kerala-born player to pick a batsman from international cricket, who holds the ability, skill set and calibre to score a triple century in an ODI. His question read, “Who is the likely candidate to score a triple century in ODIs?.
Sreesanth took a small pause and said in his opinion KL Rahul and Virat Kohli are the two players that can achieve that impossible-looking streak. Meanwhile, he also felt that Ben Stokes is one of the overseas cricketers, who might also manage to do so, “Maybe Virat Kohli, KL Rahul. Ben Stokes also have a chance,” the 37-year-old former Indian fast bowler said.
Meanwhile, there was another question to pick his favourite Indian skipper. Everyone had an expectation that he might take the name of MS Dhoni, who helped Team India in winning two ICC World Cups – (One T20 World Cup and an ODI World Cup) – but that was not the case. However, he took the name of former Indian skipper, Kapil Dev, who led Team India to their maiden ODI World Cup trophy back in 1983.
