Kochi:Exuding confidence and basking in glory after the stupendous effort in the just concluded South Africa tour, firebrand Indian paceman S Sreesanth today said his best is yet to come.

Addressing a gathering at a felicitation function organised by the Kerala Cricket Association here, Sreesanth said, ''No one would be disappointed with my performance in future as the best is yet to come.'' ''Cricket is a passion for me and everything came naturally,'' he noted.

He said the focus on the game was paramount and would try to keep injuries at bay to be an integral part of Team India.

Admitting his 'positive aggression' on the field he said, ''I went with coach Greg Chappell's advice to be an Aussie in mind and Indian by heart.'' Referring to the 'war dance' after hitting South African fast bowler Andre Nel for a six, he said it was spontaneous, as it was a dream to hit a fast bowler for the maximum runs.

He said the aggression was the product of the 'tennis ball cricket' played in the teens with seasoned players.

Earlier, speaking to newspersons he said invaluable tips from Pakistan legend Wasim Akram was the greatest New Year gift for him.

Akram reiterated the importance of line and length and to stick to the basics.

Sreesanth added that the secret of his success in the tour was the concentration of line and length, even when hit for boundaries.

He also admitted of his aspirations to contribute with the bat also in future.

Sreesanth also urged the aspiring young cricketers to be determined and not to be discouraged with trivial failures coming their way.
