Not the one to stay away from controversy, Sreesanth was all over in the news during his cricketing career. And even in the ongoing season of Big Boss, he has been grabbing headlines with few of his stunning revelations.
A few days back, he had revealed that his fight against Harbhajan Singh in IPL saw the off-spinner try to hit him, and not just slap. Now, he has come up another big admission, something which will stun the world.
In 2013, IPL was rocked with spot-fixing charge, and Sreesanth's name popped from it, prompting BCCI to ban him from cricket for life. He was acquitted of the charge in 2015, but Delhi High Court restored the ban in 2017. The pacer then moved Supreme Court against his ban earlier this year.
In the sneak peek of the upcoming episode, the 2007 World T20 and 2011 World Cup winner could be heard telling his fellow contestants that he tried to commit suicide following the spot-fixing allegations against him in IPL.
"There was blame against me of match fixing of upto Rs 10 lakh. They said they have the proof of fixing. But I never did it. I tried to kill myself. If my kids go to play cricket, I can't even go to watch them," an emotional Sreesanth told his housemates.
In one of the previous episode of the show, Sreesanth had also opened up about the 'slapgate' controversy. Playing for Kings XI Punjab then, Sreesanth was slapped by Mumbai Indians' Harbhajan Singh after the fixture between their respective teams.
The incident courted a lot of controversy, and deeply affected Sreesanth, who was in tears and was being consoled by his teammates. Bhajji had immediately apologised for his actions, and over the years, has said a number of times he regretted what had happened.
Though, a new revelation was made by Sreesanth about the incident. The pacer broke his silence about the whole incident, and stated that Harbhajan had actually hit him with force, and not just slapped.
