Sreesanth foresees a role for himself in World Cup

S Sreesanth is yet to cement a regular place in the one-day squad but the sprightly Kerala paceman believes he has an important role to play in Team India's scheme of things in this World Cup.

"I have set a goal for myself and I am sure it's going to help the team. I have been working on it and I'm sure I will play a big role in the World Cup", said a confident Sreesanth.

Sreesanth is not an automatic choice in the shorter version of the game and the youngster starts only as the fourth option after Zaheer Khan, Ajit Agarkar and Munaf Patel.

The Kerala speedster's propensity to bowl a fuller length serves him well in Tests but the same ploy is not working in one-dayers where the batsmen are tonking him over the head of a restricted field.

The pacer, however, believes that of late he has got a solution and the results are very encouraging.

"One of the things I did to get my length right was to bowl from within the crease in the last couple of one-dayers in India, as well in the practice games here. I think it's working fine", he said.

Sreesanth admitted it would be quite hard work for the bowlers trying to bowl the perfect length on slow Caribbean wickets.
