“My dear brother Piyush Chawla’s father, Pramod uncle is no more. My deepest condolences to you & your family. I pray that you go thru this difficult time with patience. Uncle was a great soul and full of life. COVID has taken one more life.”

Suresh Raina, former skipper of the Uttar Pradesh squad, too expressed his grief.

“Saddened to hear about the demise of Piyush Chawla’s father. My prayers are with you and your family. Stay strong & safe brother! OmShanti,” tweeted Raina.

MI’s official Twitter account also conveyed their solicitude over the sad demise of Piyush’s father.

“Our thoughts go out to Piyush Chawla who lost his father, Mr. Pramod Kumar Chawla this morning. We are with you and your family in this difficult time. Stay strong.”

Indian legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar also paid tributes via Twitter.

“It’s heartbreaking to know about the demise of Piyush’s father. May his soul rest in peace. My condolences to him and his family & praying that God gives them all the strength to help endure this loss.”

The last few days have been sad for the Indian cricket fraternity as Rajasthan Royals’ (RR) young fast bowler Chetan Sakariya too lost his father due to COVID-19 on Sunday (May 9).

India all-rounder Veda Krishnamurthy lost both her mother and sister because of the deadly virus recently.

The supporters of both the countries have, however, started engaging in banters online. England cricket supporters’ club Barmy Army posted a video of their pacer James Anderson to take a sly dig at the Indian cricket enthusiasts.

Indian fans troll Anderson by calling him ‘Clouderson’ since the stalwart heavily relies on his swing, which is assisted by an overcast condition.

Barmy Army shared a video in which the 38-year-old can be seen knocking off the stumps of Ajinkya Rahane and Shubman Gill during the first Test of the England tour of India 2021 in Chennai.

“To all the Indian fans in our mentions saying Jimmy ‘Clouderson’,” the English cricket followers captioned the video.

Indian fans were on their heels and retorted quickly by sharing a clip of wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant hitting Anderson over the slips with a reverse sweep. The fearless Roorkee-born lad countered Anderson’s pace by taking the latter with surprise through his inventive array of shots.

The first Test saw the Joe Root-led side thrash India, who made a timely return to win the series 3-1. The hosts outclassed the visitors in all three formats of the game and registered a comprehensive victory.
