Indian cricket team's former pace bowler S Sreesanth, who’s been in the news ­several times in the past for battling temper issues on the pitch, has done it again.

The 31-year-old, a participant in an ongoing dance reality show Jhalak Dikkhla Jaa, apparently lost his cool and stormed out of the sets, recently.

"Sreesanth wasn't happy that he was placed among the bottom two performers of the week. After the marks were announced, upset and angry he didn’t seem eager to perform for the face off with as much gusto," says a source from the sets of the show that'll see it's fifth ­elimination this week.

"When judges, choreographer Remo D'souza and actor Madhuri Dixit, pointed out his flaws and said that he didn’t ­perform up to the mark, Sreesanth almost got into an argument with them, harping on the point that he believes that he did quite well. To not let matters go out of hand, Karan Johar even said that he wouldn’t like to make any comment about his ­dancing skills. Sree then went backstage and stormed out of the sets," adds the source.

Sreesanth, who's on a life ban from cricket after being charged with spot-fixing in a T20 tournament last year, has been fined several times for breaching the code of conduct. He hit headlines in 2007 for his altercation with former Australian cricketer Andrew Symonds. The cricketer could not be reached for comment.
