Here is why Team India players wore a black arm band during the second T20I against England

Posted On / /

The players of team India were seen wearing black arm bands during the second T20I against England at Nagpur.

The black band was in memory of late Rajesh Sawant, the India U19 trainer. The Indian team showed their respect with the band. Earlier on the day, Sawant was found dead in his hotel room.

Sawant was even part of the Rest of India side that beat Gujarat in the Irani Cup last week. He was supposed to report for training ahead of the U-19 side’s first ODI against England on January 31 but didn’t show up and was found dead in his hotel room in Mumbai.

Not only did Sawant worked with several Indian star players such as Yuvraj Singh, MS Dhoni and Ashish Nehra when they were part of the India A side that took on England in the warm-up matches before the start of limited-overs series.
