Sreenath Aravind is a former professional Indian cricketer, born on 8th April 1984 in Bangalore, Karnataka. He was a left-arm medium fast bowler and a left-handed lower-order batsman.
Aravind played for Karnataka from 2009 to 2018 in the first class level and had some excellent years for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL, playing from 2011 to 2017. The major teams that he has been part of include Karnataka, Mangalore United and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
His first class debut was against Saurashtra on 26th December, 2008. Aravind is a booming Indian fast bowler trying to make his way towards the Indian National side with his consistent performance at the first class level playing a wonderful show in the 2011 IPL season where his team Royal Challengers Bangalore were one of the table toppers.
Sreenath Aravind was capable of taking the ball away from the right-handed batsman which makes him a more lethal bowler. Senior bowlers like Zaheer Khan and Daniel Vettori who have been mighty successful at the international level are helping him to master his skills and grow as a better bowler.

He played once for India in a T20 International in October 2015 against South Africa in Dharamsala, taking 1-44 from 3.4 overs, while he earned an ODI squad call-up in October 2011 for a series against England but didn’t play.
