S Sreesanth has just two matches against Sri Lanka to tide over his poor form before India's World Cup squad is finalised but the aggressive Kerala paceman says he has now learnt the art of "stopping the runs" on flat pitches.
Sreesanth admits that his form left much to be desired in the home series against the West Indies and sees his selection for the first two matches against Sri Lanka as a great opportunity to prove his worth and secure a place in the World Cup line-up.
"It was a learning experience for me. I had bowled quite a few wides and I will not commit such mistakes. I will stop the runs. I will put in my very best against the Sri Lankans in the coming matches," Sreesanth said.
Sreesanth played in only two matches against the West Indies and had figures of 1-79 at Nagpur and 1-67 at Chennai. But with the Indian World Cup squad to be announced on Ferbuary 12, the speedster will get just to matches to stake his claim for a place in the 15-member team.
"It is a great opportunity for me that I have been selected for the first two matches against Sri Lanka. I would work hard and will see that I do not give many runs this time. I am still a learner. I will not take things for granted," he said.
