Known for swinging the ball in his days as a fast bowler, Sreesanth clearly has some problems swinging public support in his favour. While his contest against Kerala's health minister in Thiruvananthapuram has brought him into the spotlight, he might give Rahul Gandhi a run for his money with his gaffes.
The BJP candidate from Thiruvananthapuram referred to Kerala in a tweet as he said, "we can be worlds best city if we all work together".
The change is must in Kerala Nd Iam sure It will happen this time..we can be worlds best city if we all work together..— Sreesanth (@sreesanth36) April 17, 2016
And as Twitter users had a field day pointing out the fast bowler's slip up, Sreesanth blocked a user:

While this isn't the first time the BJP candidate has been caught off guard, blocking voters for pointing out mistakes doesn't seem like a great idea as polls approach.
