Former cricketer Vijay Yadav is seriously ill
Former Indian cricket Vijay Yadav is fighting the battle of his life these days. His kidney has failed and he needs financial help for its treatment. Not only this, he has also had a heart attack twice. Yadav has been on dialysis for a long time. This condition of his would not have come in front of the country, if cricket writer and journalist Vijay Lokpally had not brought his condition in front of the country through Twitter. However, it is a matter of relief that now there are reports that helping hands have started reaching out to assist the former cricketer.
When Sachin Tendulkar turned the ball around
Vijay Lokpally has also shared an interesting anecdote related to the 1993 Hero Cup semi-final match, how at his behest, India overturned the game by getting Sachin the ball in the last over and won the match against South Africa. According to the information so far, many former cricketers have come forward to help the ailing Vijay Yadav. The Haryana Cricket Association has also extended financial assistance to him. It is likely that BCCI will also take some step to help them. Actually, there have been many difficulties in the life of the former wicketkeeper for the last few years. In 2006, he was badly injured in a car accident in Faridabad, adjacent to Delhi. Since then his health is not keeping well. That accident also broke him emotionally. His 11-year-old daughter had died in that accident.
Sachin gave only 3 runs in the last over
Vijay Lokpally, who has written a book on many cricketers, wrote in his tweet, ‘The former Indian wicketkeeper is in dire need of financial help for the treatment of kidney failure. He is on dialysis and has had two heart attacks. He was the one who suggested in the last over against South Africa in the Hero Cup semi-final in 1993 that Sachin Tendulkar should get the ball bowled. This match was played in Kolkata and captain Azharuddin handed over the last over to Sachin. South Africa needed only 6 runs to win, but Tendulkar gave only 3 runs and India won the match.
