    Well done Sreesanth!

    On Day 3 at Trent Bridge, towards the end of India's innings, Zaheer Khan and Kevin Pietersen got into a slanging match. This is what Cricinfo had to say:
    Zaheer and Pietersen exchanging insults and the umpire has to step in as Zaheer brandishes his bat. It's all kicking off and so unlike the shy and retiring KP to speak out of turn. "Sure you've got the right man," he chirps as the umpire tells him to calm down
    When I saw that on TV, the first thing I told my brother was that Zaheer needed to give Pietersen a 'perfume ball', not of the bouncer variety, but a beamer. Coincidentally, the first ball Pietersen faced yesterday was from Zaheer, but Zaheer bowled a terribly disappointing first ball. A few overs later, Sreesanth had the ball and he did what Zaheer didn't, albeit perhaps unintentionally.
    Sreesanth to Pietersen, 1 no ball, oh dear, that was unintentionally nasty - a beamer from Sreesanth heads straight for Pietersen's head. Pietersen crashes to the ground, taking evasive action, and Sreesanth apologises immediately
    Next over, Pietersen was out twice - the first time it wasn't given (caught behind) and a ball later, he was out lbw to a beautiful banana inswinger from RP Singh. I must confess that my earlier skepticism about RP Singh seems misplaced. He has a lot of ability and potential. He's shown that he can handle the job of the #3 seamer quite well. He bowled brilliantly in England's second innings at Lord's and did a great job yesterday with the crucial wickets of Pietersen and Prior.

    For that beamer act of his, despite his theatrics & otherwise shoddy show with the ball, three cheers to Sreesanth! Hip hip hurrah! Hip hip hurrah! Hip hip hurrah!s
