His pathetic performances were making articles like one published in India Express ‘Sidhu: The Stroke less Wonder” written by a noted cricket columnist, Rajan Bala. 
 
This criticizing article gave Sidhu, a focus and motive and consequently he geared up his performances. With a mind blowing performance in 1987 world cup, the same columnist wrote an article ‘Sidhu: From Stroke less Wonder to A Palm-Grove Hitler’ praising his performance.
 
After this there was no looking back and he took his cricket to new heights. One of the most remarkable performances of Sidhu in Tests was his 201 against West-Indies in 1996-97, a defiant knock lasting seven hours.
 
After he waved goodbye to all forms of cricket in 1999, he took to commentary and worked as a commentator for takes his castle sport when India toured Sri Lanka in 2001. He later joined ESPN-Star sports and when sacked from ESPN for swearing on-air, he joined TEN Sports. In 2012 he returned to ESPN star sports and today is a famous Hindi commentator.

He has always been loved by Indian audience for his undying positive attitude which reflected in his one-liners during his commentary carrier which got famous as ‘Sidhuisim’ and on television shows as ‘sher-o-shyari’.
