Sreesanth will join the Indian world cup squad after Praveen Kumar, the India fast bowler, has been ruled out of the Indian side due to an injured elbow. It was decided after Praveen Kumar did not clear a fitness test at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore.
Sreesanth has played only 51 one-dayers in more than five years since his debut in 2005, and has a bloated career economy rate of 6.01. But he proved effective in the two ODIs he's played over the past 12 months, bagging seven wickets for 77 runs. He proved himself in Test cricket too. He will join the fast bowler group having mates Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra and Munaf Patel.
