Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s father passed away due to cancer in Meerut.
Team India’s ace pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s father has passed away after losing his battle with cancer in Meerut. The 63-years old Kiran Pal Singh had liver ailments along with cancer and was undergoing chemotherapy.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s father was a sub-inspector in Uttar Pradesh Police and had taken voluntary retirement. In September 2020, Kiran Pal Singh was diagnosed with cancer when Bhuvneshwar Kumar was on his IPL duty for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in UAE.
According to the reports, Kumar’s father was undergoing his cancer treatment from AIIMS Delhi and had also consulted the doctors in the UK.
Mr Singh’s health deteriorated a couple of weeks ago following which he was admitted to a nearby hospital in Ganga Nagar in Meerut. After getting discharged two days ago, Kiran Pal Singh today took his last breath.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar is currently at home for the last rites of his father. He was earlier dropped from India’s Test squad that will tour England for the marquee ICC World Test Championship final and subsequent England series.
It is expected that the pacer will be named in the limited overs squad when India will tour Sri Lanka in July.
Recently, Kumar also cleared the air by claiming that he is not willing to play the test format anymore. The pacer in response to the fake claims said that he has always prepared himself for all three formats regardless of the selection.
Further he said that the reporters need to clarify the whole statement before publishing it in the newspapers.
“There have been articles about me not wanting to play Test cricket. Just to clarify, I have always prepared myself for all three formats irrespective of the team selection and will continue to do the same. Suggestion – please don’t write your assumptions based on “sources”!,” said Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
