He was one of the most flamboyant players the Indian men’s cricket team has ever seen. Hitting sixes at will, giving it back to opposition players who tried to ruffle his feathers, and being an all-around performer were some of his distinct qualities as a player. He carried the same panache to his innings as a politician and a TV celebrity, winning hearts with his Shayari and winning raves for it too!
We’re indeed talking about the buoyant Navjot Singh Sidhu!
Sidhu, fondly known as “Sherry”, was one of the most prolific hitters of the ball. On a good day, he would smash bowlers for sixes repeatedly, the format of the game notwithstanding. His highest scores of 134 in ODIs and 201 in Tests came at crucial junctures when India needed a breakthrough and these are still remembered fondly as match-winning knocks.
Always a man of his words, he joined active politics when he felt the need to contribute more to the society and entered the arena of TV when he wanted to do something entirely different. Needless to say, he has been super-successful in both these endeavors and we hope it continues the same way.
