Indian pacer Sreesanth reacts after getting unsold at the IPL Auctions

Sreesanth sings “Ruk Jana Nahi” with a message of never giving up.

Indian pacer Sreesanth reacted after he was not auctioned in the Indian Premier League mega auctions. Sreesanth sends a positive message to everyone, especially to the young talents with a quote of never giving up. Sreesanth tweeted a short video of him singing a motivational Hindi song – ‘Ruk Jana Nahi’ and posted the video with a caption of – “Always grateful and always looking forward. Lots of love and respect to each and every one of you”.

The Indian bowler was one of the players who had registered to go under the hammer, but when the accelerated auctions began on Day 2, Sreesanth’s name did not appear on the list since the accelerated auction’s method was a list of players who were preferred or recommended by the 10 franchises. Sreesanth was expected to make a strong comeback, but the Indian pacer failed to land a single deal during the two-day auctions.

Last season, Sreesanth, who was suspended for seven years by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for his possible involvement in the 2013 IPL spot-fixing scandal, returned to the domestic circuit.

Last season, the 39-year-old was skipped over during the auction. From 2008 to 2013, Sreesanth appeared in 44 IPL games for Kings XI Punjab, Kochi Tuskers Kerala, and Rajasthan Royals. The right-arm fast bowler, who was a member of the 2007 T20 World Cup-winning squad as well as the Indian team that won the 2011 ODI World Cup, has been named to Kerala’s side for the upcoming Ranji Trophy.
