Bangalore:Looking to cement his place in the team with a good performance in the upcoming tri-series in Sri Lanka, S Sreesanth says he is concentrating on his length and rhythm to bring consistency in his bowling.

''During the camp, I was concentrating on my length and rhythm,'' the 23-year-old pacer said in a chat with newspersons after being appointed the Brand Ambassador of Muthoot Pappachan Group here last night.

To a question about the tri-series, he said ''I am looking forward to put up a good show at the series.'' Sreesanth said the different kind of tactics adopted during the Fitness Camp as well as the 'Match Simulation' session during the Cricket Skill camp would help in future endeavours.

The pacer said the camp also gave an opportunity to youngsters like him to know each other and discuss problems with seniors.

Sreesanth, who made his ODI debut in 2005 against Sri Lanka, 18 wickets in 24 matches. His best figures in the ODIs are 6/55 and in the longer version of the game, he has taken 19 wickets with a career best of 5/100.

The youngster declined to comment on the inclusion of former skipper Sourav Ganguly in the 30-member list of probables for the ICC Champions Trophy, announced here yesterday.

The Kerala lad exuded confidence of many more youngsters from his State entering the national team in the future.

''There are players in Kerala and the need of the hour is for them to discipline themselves and concentrate more on the game,'' he said.
