Cricketer Piyush Chawla’s father dies of COVID-related complications


Cricketer Piyush Chawla’s father Pramod Kumar Chawla succumbed to COVID-related complications on Monday. He was 60 years old.

Chawla took to his Instagram account and wrote:

Chawla’s latest IPL team Mumbai Indians too offered their condolences.

Former India pacer Irfan Pathan also condoled the demise.

Chawla, 32, has played three Tests, 25 ODIs and 7 T20s for India. He represents Gujarat in the domestic circuit and has so far played 136 first-class matches, taking 445 wickets in it.

The Aligarh-born spinner was fetched by Mumbai Indians in the IPL auction this year but he did not play a single game in the 2021 edition of the lucrative league, which was indefinitely suspended due to the COVID-19 outbreak in its bio-bubble.
