Sreesanth calls Kerala a city: Tharoor says cricketer should stick to his outswingers

Looks like former cricketer S Sreesanth needs a lesson on basic geography. The BJP's candidate from Thiruvananthapuram seemed to have forgotten the difference between a city and a state. According to The Indian Express, Sreesanth in an attempt to share his vision, ahead of the Kerala polls, tweeted: “The change is must in Kerala Nd Iam sure It will happen this time..we can be worlds best city if we all work together.”


Sreesanth's faux pas will definitely haunt him for days. The good folks on Twitter will not let him forget so easily.

Here's what some had to say.

Meanwhile, a tiny duel of tweets ensued between Congress MP Shashi Tharoor and Sreesanth as Tharoor said the former cricketer should have 'stuck to his great outswingers'.

To which Sreesanth replied:

Tharoor did say that Sreesanth remains one his favourite players. "But politics is a different field.Now you're in the nets, full tosses will come," he added.
