It seems like former Indian cricketer Sreesanth is quite an emotional person. He grabbed the media limelight for crying in the field when fellow cricketer Harbhajan Singh slapped him a few years ago at the end of an IPL match. Well, the cricketer is in the news once again for breaking down. And this time, it’s not in the cricket field but at the Bigg Boss house.
The controversial cricketer made it to the Bigg Boss season 12. Recently, he recalled an incident involving Sachin Tendulkar, which he shared with fellow contestant Anup Jalota, and broke down.
Speaking to Anup Jalota, the 35-year-old former fast pacer opened up on an interview Sachin Tendulkar was giving about the 2011 ICC World Cup when a mention of his name got him all emotional. This is what the Kerala-born former cricketer shared:
“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.”
Needless to mention, Sreesanth has had a difficult time in the Bigg Boss house and has often been engaged in tussles with fellow participants.
He was recently put in the secret room in the house watching all the activities of the other contestants without participating himself.
Meanwhile, Sreesanth, who is reportedly the highest-paid celebrity in the Bigg Boss house this season, was found guilty of wrongdoing in the 2013 IPL scandal along with Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan. The once one of the finest pace bowlers in the Indian cricket team was imposed a life ban by the BCCI.
