Sreesanth, the India fast bowler, has said that he will continue to represent his home state, Kerala, in the Ranji Trophy. He had earlier hinted at the possibility of switching states for the 2010-11 domestic season.

"I always want to represent the Indian team as a Keralite and I will continue to play for Kerala", he said in Thiruvananthapuram.

Sreesanth had been included in Kerala's 25-man preliminary squad but was not named captain. "Though I have not taken a final decision,I might opt for playing for another state in the coming season," he had told PTI at the time. "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."

However, he said that he would stick with Kerala. "I only mentioned my opinion during an interview and nothing more to be attributed to it. Series and matches are coming and I am working hard to be part of the [Indian] team."
