Rajasthan Royals Bowler Chetan Sakariya’s Father Dies Of COVID-19

Rajasthan Royals (RR) bowler Chetan Sakariya’s father died of COVID-19.

The Indian Premier League franchise team Rajasthan Royals said on Sunday. “It pains us so much to confirm that Mr Kanjibhai Sakariya lost his battle with Covid-19 earlier today. We’re in touch with Chetan and will provide all possible support to him and his family in this difficult time,” RR tweeted. Left-arm fast bowler Chetan Sakariya, who played his first Indian Premier League season in 2021, had lost his brother in January this year.

Sakariya is another cricketer to have lost a family member to COVID-19 after India Women’s cricketer Veda Krishnamurthy lost her sister and her mother to the virus.
