Sreesanth, the Kerala fast bowler, has said he might switch teams in the next domestic season. He was included in Kerala's 25-man preliminary squad but not named captain.

"Though I have not taken a final decision,I might opt for playing for another state in the coming season," he told PTI. "Even if I play for some other state, it is because I want to play more cricket so that I could do well and get into team India."

Kerala Cricket Association (KCA) secretary TC Mathew said Sreesanth would need an NOC from the KCA if he wanted to represent another state side. "If Sreesanth has decided to play for another state, then he will have to obtain NOC (no objection certificate) from Kerala Cricket Association," he said. "Once application is given for NOC, the KCA's Central council will discuss and take a decision on that."

Sreesanth has been training at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore as he attempts to regain a place in the Indian team after being left out of the squad for the Asia Cup. He said his focus is on making a national comeback. "I am working very hard and I want to play for the country. I am really hoping to make a comeback into team India."
