Now, Sreesanth, the former Indian pacer also joined the bandwagon and gave answers to the curious questions of the fans. During the same, he picked his favourite bowler and batsman across all the formats at the moment in international cricket.
The 37-year-old pacer is one of the most controversial bowlers produced by Indian cricket.

However, in 2019, the Supreme Court reduced his ban to seven years that will end in the month of August this year.
