Big Boss: Sreesanth Thanks Sachin Tendulkar For Prompting His Name During Interview

S Sreesanth was part of India’s both ICC T20 2007 and 2011 World Cup squads.

Banned fast bowler S Sreesanth has often spoken about his admiration for the legendary Sachin Tendulkar. The pacer mentioned an interesting anecdote in an episode of the reality show Big Boss on Monday that involved Tendulkar and Sreesanth went on to add that the maestro’s gesture brought tears to his eyes.

“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,” he told his fellow participant Anup Jalota.

The 35-year-old player is currently serving a life ban on cricket imposed by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The Delhi Police had arrested Sreesanth and other two cricketers Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan on charges of spot-fixing during the Indian Premier League in 2013.

A single-judge bench of the Kerala High Court had on August 7 last year lifted the life ban imposed on Sreesanth by the BCCI and set aside all proceedings against him initiated by the board.

A division bench of the high court had later restored the ban on a petition filed by the BCCI against the single-judge bench’s order.
