Sreesanth vows to be different

GURUVAYUR: “My decision to be different in attitude and approach has enabled me to attain a five-wicket haul on my return to the Test cricket.

“I feel I am blessed to offer prayers for the first time in my life on the Ekadasi Day. I vow to continue the new attitude and approach. But the passion and aggression for the game will continue,” he said.

“My prayers gave me a new mental strength to overcome any provocations to tamper with my concentration, behavioural attitude while I play for the country,” he said. Sreesanth arrived at the temple amidst a heavy crowd of devotees owing to the Ekadasi. He was greeted by the devotees and wished him success.
