Former Indian cricketer S Sreesanth and his wife Bhuvneshwari Kumari welcomed their second child on Wednesday. The cricketer from Kerala, who played 27 Tests, 53 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and 10 Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) for India during the period between 2006 and 2011, already has a daughter named Sree Sanvika, who was born in May 2015. An ecstatic Sreesanth went on to announce the same on the microblogging site Twitter. He was overjoyed and it was apparent through his series of tweets. The former pace bowler went to spread his joy with his fans and followers on Twitter with the following posts:



These are happier times for the couple which has endured lot of negativity and troubles in the past. Sreesanth, who has been a part of India s 2007 World T20 and World Cup 2011 winning teams, was found guilty of spot-fixing during IPL 2013 and was subsequently banned by the BCCI for life. He even had to stay behind the bars for some time, which was a difficult period for the family. His wife Bhuvneshwari, who was then his ladylove, stuck to him in the difficult times and married him the same year. In May 2015, the couple had their first child – a daughter – who they named Sree Sanvika.

Since then, Sreesanth has focussed on other things in life like considering acting in Malayalam movies as well as contesting the assembly elections on a BJP ticket, which he lost. All this while, he has maintained he wishes to play for India once again. We wish Sreesanth and his family on the arrival of the little bundle of joy in their lives!
