Paceman S Sreesanth dismissed suggestions that he had a longer bowling run-up than required and expressed confidence that he would put up a good show in the upcoming series in Sri Lanka, having worked on his rhythm.

"I don't think so. I love running. I enjoy it. That's me," the Kerala speedster said justifying his long run-up.

Sreesanth said he had worked hard on his run-up and rhythm at the camp here.

"I was just working on my run-up... More of rhythm. I was not getting my rhythm properly. Just working on it. It's Sri Lanka and I do not want to fall back because of that."

"I am very positive (on the Sri Lanka tri-series)," he said. "Hopefully, I will really do well there, God willing. I am working very hard, and I will try to do my very best."

Meanwhile, as a sign of gaining stature, Sreesanth has bagged yet another endorsement deal. He has been appointed the brand ambassador of Kerala-based Muthoot Pappachan Group, which is embarking on a Rs 210 crore expansion activity with an aspiration to have a pan-India presence.

"I am keen to see more Malayalees to burst into the national cricket scene," Sreesanth said replying to a question here last night."

He said there were some players in Kerala who had the potential to make it big and that Kerala cricket was on "right track" but added they would do better with "more discipline".
