The former Indian cricketer, Sreesanth who is currently in the Bigg Boss house recounted an interesting incident which involved the Master Blaster, Sachin Tendulkar. People are loving his stints inside the show as he is emerging out to be one of the genuine contestants of the house.
Sreesanth is currently serving his lifetime ban on cricket, which was imposed by the BCCI. He was a part of both of India’s successful World Cup victories – the 2007 World T20 as well as the 2011 Cricket World Cup. In 2007’s world cup, Sreesanth was the fielder who completed the crucial catch of Misbah ul-Haq at fine leg to seal the victory for Men in Blue, which was led by MS Dhoni.
In the show, Sreesanth recalled an incident of 2011 when after India’s triumph in 2011, all the World Cup winning players from India were being interviewed. He recalled that interview and thanked Sachin Tendulkar for taking his side. Talking to Anup Jalota about the same, he said :
“I want to share one incident related to Sachin Tendulkar. 1-2 years after our 2011 World Cup triumph, an interview was going on. The interviewer asked about everyone. 2011 you guys played well taking all players’ names but not mine. When the interview was about to end, Sachin Tendulkar prompted my name saying Sreesanth also played a major role. I cried a lot during that time.”
Sreesanth’s performance during both the World Cup was really appreciated and applauded by everyone. However, now he is currently on his lifetime ban and can never play cricket for India.
