Dinesh Mongia, the former all-rounder of the Indian cricket team, has now entered politics as well. He joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Delhi on Tuesday. Mongia will now be seen hitting fours and sixes for BJP on the pitch of politics after the cricket field.

Let us tell you that Dinesh Mongia had said goodbye to all forms of cricket in the year 2019. Mongia was selected for the role of an all-rounder in the Indian team. He is a left-handed batsman and left-arm spinner.

He has scored 1230 runs in 57 ODIs for the Indian team at an average of 27.95. During this he has scored 4 half-centuries and 1 century. His highest individual score was 159* not out. At the same time, he also took 14 wickets. Not only this, Mongia also played 1 T20I match, in which he did not get a chance to bowl, but scored 38 runs in the batting.

It is worth noting that even before Dinesh Mongia, many cricketers have entered the field of politics.
