Twitter users reacted after the 38-year-old pacer’s exclusion from the final shortlist of the IPL auction. Some of them believe that it was the right thing which happened while the majority of them are sympathizing over the bowler’s exclusion on Twitter, let’s have a look at the tweets:
In the initial stage of his career, Sreesanth was the prime Indian pacer, he played a crucial role in India’s 2007 T20 World Cup victory and also featured in the successful 2011 World Cup campaign.
