Thiruvanthapuram: Kerala's pace star S Sreesanth is making efforts to get into the Indian team in the upcoming West Indies tour.

"I hope to make a comeback to Team India in the forthcoming West Indies (one-day) tour and also in the Champions Trophy to be held in South Africa (in October)," he said.

"I have recovered from my injury and I am also training. In fact, I have played four or five IPL matches in South Africa," he said.

Sreesanth was speaking to media men after inaugurating a Regional Cricket Coaching Academy at Mar Athanasious College in Kothamangalam in Ernakulam district.

The Kerala Cricket Association-funded coaching centre is the first ever indoor practice academy with lighting facility in Kerala. It also has a bowling machine for practice.

Sreesanth, who hails from Kothamangalam, said, "This type of facility was not there when I played for Kerala. But the present youngsters are lucky because they have all the facilities here." T C Mathew, Secretary Kerala Cricket Association (KCA), said KCA has plans to build cricket stadiums in all the 14 districts.
