Mast Dance Kiya Re...

"Dancing was my hobby during my school days. I still dance sometimes with friends at parties, but that is only for pleasure." said Sreesanth, who picks pop star Michael Jackson and Indian dancers Prabhu Deva and Javed Jaffrey as his favourite movers and shakers.

One saw this on 17th December 2006, when Sreesanth gave one of the most fitting replies to an opposition comment by Andre Nel of South Africa. Andre Nel went up to him and made faces at Sreesanth’s lack of heart to play his deliveries. Sreesanth hit a straight six of his very next delivery and went into a riot swinging his bat and dancing down the pitch.Watch the video below.

Was is not an allotropic toned down version of Kathakali,the dance form from Kerala,God’s own land. As in Kathakali in which the dancers never speak and use facial expressions and ferocious bodily movements/gestures, Sreesanth also expressed his heart-felt reply to Andre Nel’s gimmicks.

Can you believe Sreesanth is an accomplished break-dancer? Not such a stunning revelation, considering the jig you saw now. For your information India’s newest pace sensation was a national break-dance champion while in his eighth standard once upon a time. And it’s something he is very, very proud of, even if he doesn’t admit it.

Sreesanth is a man of many dimensions and of varied interests. And his varied backgrounds of upbringing have played their parts too. His English reveals his Bangalorean roots. His Hindi has a distinct Delhi twang. And his Malayalam is very urbane, though he hails from Kerala, the land of greenery and backwaters. In November 2004, Sreesanth entered the record books when he took a hat-trick in a Ranji Trophy game, the first time it was achieved by a Kerala bowler, earning him the nickname The Prince of hat-tricks amongst Keralites.

Me though not a cricket freak, enjoyed this jig in the morning newscast and it was really hilarious and entertaining. So after Dhoni receiving comments from Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf on his hairstyle, following which a number of hair product firms made a bee-line for him. So now Sreesanth, whats there for you.
