New Delhi: Many Indian cricket players and IPL Franchises are paying condolences to Bhuvi’s father’s demise on Thursday evening. Among them are former Test opener Wasim Jaffer, star batsman Suresh Raina, Mumbai Indians, etc.
India fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s father Kiranpal Singh has passed away on Thursday. His father breathed his last at Bhuvaneswar’s residence in Meerut. He was a retired sub-inspector in the Uttar Pradesh police. Kiranpal Singh, 63, was suffering from cancer. He was undergoing treatment for a long time and Bhuvaneswar was serving him by keeping him at home. He was suffering from liver cancer due to which he was hospitalized last year. After that, he was admitted to a hospital in Delhi where he was kept for about a month.
Former Test opener said, “So sorry to hear about your father @BhuviOfficial. May his soul rest in peace. Thoughts and prayers with you and family. Please take care and stay strong.”
“Very sorry to hear about your Father @BhuviOfficial! May his soul rest in peace. Heartfelt condolences to you & your family. Om Shanti,” Suresh Raina tweeted.
SunRisers Hyderabad pay condolence and said, “Our condolences to @BhuviOfficial & his family on the passing of his father. Stay strong, Bhuvi.”
Last week, India spinner Piyush Chawla’s father Pramod Kumar Chawla died due to Covid-19 complications.
Bhubaneswar was injured during the 13th season of the Indian Premier League played in the UAE last year. The bowler, who played for Sunrisers Hyderabad, had to be ruled out of the entire season after suffering an injury in the match against Chennai Super Kings. Bhuvi made a comeback in the recently played series against India. In 3 ODIs, this bowler picked up 6 wickets while he took 4 wickets in 5 T20s. He had contributed to India’s victory by bowling brilliantly. In March, he was nominated the ICC Player of the Month.
