Sreesanth is an overrated bowler: Hayden

Centurion: Chennai Super Kings' opener Matthew Hayden, who destroyed the Punjab bowling attack on Thursday, came down heavily on Kings XI Punjab pacer Sreesanth and described his as 'overrated' bowler.

The former Australian opener smashed Sreesanth all over the ground taking 32 runs in 19 deliveries off Sreesanth before getting out to him just short of the three figure mark.

As Hayden headed back to the dugout Sreesanth lashed out at him. However, Hayden hit back at Sree in the post match press conference saying that Sreesanth loses his cool during pressure matches making him an easy target for the opposition. Hayden scored 32 runs of Sreesanth's 19 balls.

He said, "I think he is an overrated bowler and so I think he was a great target for us to go at. He always loses his cool under pressure and I think tonight was a good example of that."
