In another tragic on-field incident 21-year-old bengal all-rounder collapsed due to a possible cardiac arrest in Kolkata on Tuesday. Aniket Sharma of Paikpara Sporting Club, was brought dead to a city hospital.
“We were all there on the field, warming up. He wanted to play football for some time. While warming up, he suddenly collapsed on the field and we rushed him to the hospital,” a teammate said.
“He was a good cricketer who came here for the first time last year. He was a brilliant team man and a good fielder too. We are shocked to say the least,” the coach said.
“We are deeply saddened by the incident and it is shocking to all of us. We are trying to postpone the match which is scheduled for tomorrow,” CAB Joint Secretary Avishek Dalmiya told IANS.
Aniket’s body will be sent for post mortem, police sources said.
