Former Indian cricketer S Sreesanth is back on pitch and in a video which was shared by him, the bowler still can find the stumps. In a local match, Sreesanth bowled a ripper of a delivery to find the stumps, bamboozling the batsman. 

The bowler took to his Instagram account to share two posts of his outing on a cricket ground. The bowler celebrated in his usual style like he did when he donned the Indian jersey. Watch.

In what seemed to be a promising career, Sreesanth saw a huge downfall after he was slapped with a life ban by the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket of India) for his alleged involvement in spot-fixing in the Indian Premier League in 2011. At the time, Sreesanth played for Rajasthan Royals.

Since then, Sreesanth has been fighting legal battles with the Indian cricket board over his ban but has not succeeded so far. The Kerala High Court had given him the clearance to play, unfortunately, the BCCI later withheld the decision. 

However, over the years, Sreesanth has transformed himself into an absolute beast. His workout videos on Instagram have left people flabbergasted. 

After his cricket career ended, Sreesanth tried a hand at acting and is gearing up for his upcoming film 'Kempegowda 2'. 

He had earlier made his Bollywood debut with a cameo in Aksar 2.
