Sreenath Aravind is 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.

In the 33 Twenty20 matches that he played till date, he has managed to pick up 41 wickets with the best figures of 4 for 14 runs against Kings XI Punjab in IPL 2011. If he continues to perform well regularly then soon he might be finding himself in the National Squad.
