In tonight’s episode of Bigg Boss 12, former cricketer S Sreesanth will be seen amid the most unexpected gush of emotions. Sharing an anecdote with fellow contestants, Sreesanth was seen breaking down multiple times. After talking about the slapgate incident with Harbhajan Singh, Sreesanth will open up on the controversial match-fixing scandal.

Sreesanth, who had a high-volt career going, landed in the most muddled situation when the IPL spot-fixing scandal hit him hard along with Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan and a lifetime ban on the players was imposed by the BCCI. Once considered as one of the finest pace bowlers in the Indian cricket team, Sreesanth along with 36 others were accused in the spot-fixing case. All other players were let off by a Patiala House Court judgment in July 2015. Despite this, BCCI refused to lift the ban on Sreesanth that left him scarred deeply.  

In tonight’s episode, Sreesanth will reveal that he was accused of match-fixing for Rs 10 lakh. The former cricketer will share a heart-felt experience proving his innocence. While Sreesanth was acquitted in 2015, he said that the period was a haunting experience for him. This incident took him by shock and the cricketer found himself on the verge of depression. Falling from the great heights he achieved, the cricketer watched his career crumble to bits. This scarred the former cricketer and made him consider committing suicide at that time. The revelation will leave the housemates shocked. Watch the tweet here:

The former cricketer is seen crying his heart out again saying that he is banned from entering any cricket field in the world. The cricketer shared his aching experience and said, “Even if my children ever become cricketers, I would not be able to see them play or support them. It’s devastating.”

After his cricket career ended, the cricketer delivered the same aggression at the gym building a bulky and muscular gait for himself. After sweating it out at the gym, he embarked upon a career in Malayalam films.

With a controversial past, the cricketer-turned-actor is expected to give the housemates and his audience a chance to know him better. However, Sreesanth has managed to survive the sword of eviction this weekend and we just hope he sticks to his promise of not walking out of the show again.
