Chandigarh: In the run-up to the Lok Sabha polls, cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu has made his comeback to commentary and will be seen during the IPL 2024, which gets underway on March 23. However, his continuation in politics is still suspense.

“A wise man once said, “Hope is the biggest ‘tope’”. And this wise man, the great @sherryontopp himself, has joined our Incredible StarCast!,” said Star Sports in a post on X.

The IPL season opener is between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

Former Cabinet minister and Punjab Congress president Sidhu is lying low in politics after walking out of jail in April last year. He remained behind bars for 317 days in a Patiala jail in his hometown Patiala in a 1988 road rage case.

Responding to Sidhu’s rejoining cricket commentary, Punjab BJP spokesperson Pritpal Singh Baliawal said he was the first person in the world to foresee this.

“I tweeted this two years back that you may be join back as cricket commentator or in comedy circus. Will watch your shows in the busy schedule of elections,” he added.
