Chennai:

Selection committee chairman K Srikkanth on Friday said paceman S Sreesanth's remarkable comeback augurs well for the Indian cricket team as he could prove to be a lethal weapon in Mahendra Singh Dhoni's armoury.

Sreesanth, who returned to the Indian side after 19 months in wilderness, played a major role in India's win over Sri Lanka in the second Test and Srikkanth was effusive in his praise of the Kerala pacer.

"I must congratulate Sreesanth for his performance after a long lay-off. His comeback should augur well for the country. He bowled to his potential. His late out-swingers are always dangerous. Once he finds his rhythm, Sreesanth is a dangerous bowler and difficult for even a settled batsman to negotiate," he told PTI.

Srikkanth also credited the victory to team work.

"I am extremely happy with India's good showing in Test in both away and home matches. That is why we are heading towards number one spot. We have done well on sporting wickets. In Kanpur, the performance of both batsmen and bowlers are praiseworthy and they have done their jobs," he said.
