Making music is uppermost on Sreesanth's mind

With the IPL heading into crunch time and India’s tour of the West Indies looming on the horizon, you’d expect India’s cricketers to be focused on, well, cricket. And that’s true for 99.9% of them. The exception? Sreesanth, whose band S36 (the name tattooed on his neck) are planning a show in Singapore around the end of May and a second show in Dubai early in June. India’s tour of the West Indies starts on June 4.

“After the IPL, if there aren't any matches, then I shall be travelling with my band to do a show in Dubai," Sreesanth told the Times of India. "I am crazy about music and dance, and it has always been a dream to start my own band. And now finally, I have formed one!"

He also said he’d have an arranged marriage once his playing career was over and that he is working on building 8-pack abs, inspired by his elder brother Dipu, who already has an 8-pack and is currently working on a South Indian film.
