Many fans remember Sreesanth for his contributions to the Indian cricket team in the 2007 T20 World Cup and the 2011 Cricket World Cup. A ban because of his involvement in a fixing scandal derailed his career, but the Kerala-based fast bowler achieved a lot of success during his time as an Indian cricketer.

The right-arm fast bowler bowled a match-winning spell against the Australian cricket team in the semifinals and then took the catch of Misbah-ul-Haq in the final as the Men in Blue emerged as the champions of the inaugural ICC T20 World Cup.
