My best is yet to come: Sreesanth

One of the few successes on India's disastrous tour of South Africa, S Sreesanth says that his best is yet to come.
The 23-year-old Kerala paceman began as a leg-spinner and has now emerged as a spearhead of the Indian pace attack. But he has more plans -- improving his batting and becoming an all-rounder.
"My best is yet to come. I hope I would be able to live up to the expectations of the people. I need everyone's blessings," he said.
The Kerala bowler acknowledges that every outing in India colours has helped him mature as a bowler, only the second player to make it to the top flight cricket from the state.
"My goal is to see India win. We want to win each and every game," he said.
Sreesanth is aware that only a consistent performance will help him cement his place in the national team.
"If I do well I will be in the team and if I don't do well, I will be out, I am sure about it. I am ready for setbacks. I am always realistic. I am not in a dream world."
Sreesanth, who earned all-round praise for his show in South Africa, is not willing to rest on his laurels.
"I am a learner, I am still learning. I will not take things for granted. I have to really do well. I have to do regular practice then only I can be confident of performing well in the next game," said Sreesanth who finished with 18 wickets from three Tests, equalling Anil Kumble and Javagal Srinath's record in South Africa.
