Navjot Singh Sidhu admits cheating against West Indies during Sharjah ODI
Sunday 04 November 2012

Former cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu underwent a Layered Voice Analysis (LAV) during reality show "Bigg Boss 6".

The LAV was conducted on Sidhu, who has been posing to be extremely diplomatic on the show. He is quite positive and very friendly with all the contestants, so perhaps, he needed to be given a "reality check", said a source.

Sidhu was asked around 20 questions, not just about his cricket career, but also about his thoughts on co-participants of "Bigg Boss 6".

When he was asked if he ever cheated during his international cricket career, he said: "Haan, in Sharjah, maine Courtney Walsh ka catch boundary rope main pakda tha aur hum woh match jeet gaye the (In Sharjah, I took Courtney Walsh's catch at the boundary and it helped us win the match). But I'm repentant about it."

He also said he finds Vrajesh Hirjee as the most cunning contestant on this season of "Bigg Boss", and that he did indeed feel model Karishma Kotak was the prettiest face on the show.

Sidhu was recently put in the panic room of the show too.
