Former Indian cricketer and commentator Ajay Jadeja has become a part of the famous Indian reality show Big Boss OTT, which is back with another season. While the first season of the OTT version of the show was hosted by Karan Johar, Salman Khan will be hosting this season. The Season 2 of Big Boss OTT commenced on June 17, Saturday, and among the star-studded panel of the show, one is former cricketer Ajay Jadeja.
The former cricketer who was featured in 15 Tests and 196 ODIs for India, has become the part of the famous reality show as a panelist. Apart from him, the panel consists of popular names like Sunny Leone, news anchor Dibakar, ‘Big Boss Season 16’ winner MC Stan, and actor Sandeep Sikand. Earlier, Jad eja talked about being a part of the ‘biggest reality show of India’, and said, “I’m really excited to be a part of India’s biggest reality show and interact with a whole new generation. It’s a new experience for me, unlike cricket where it’s all about the game. In Bigg Boss OTT, the entire nation gets to know the real you and every thought is questioned for which I’m genuinely excited about.”
Jadeja was a regular part of the Indian cricket team from 1992 to 2000 but was banned for five years for match fixing. Meanwhile, the Delhi High Court quashed his ban and made him eligible to play domestic and international cricket in 2003. Jadeja captained the Indian side in 13 One-Day matches and was considered as one of the safest pair of hands in the Indian team during his tenure. After his career as a player, the 52-year-old was hired as the coach of the Delhi cricket team, but he resigned from his post shortly. After his stint as a cricketer and a cricket coach, the Gujarat-born is a commentator.
