A young club cricketer died after collapsing on the field during a friendly match on Wednesday. 22-year-old Sonu Yadav, who plays for Ballygunge Sporting Club in Cricket Association of Bengals second division league was playing a match at the Bata Club ground. According to those present at the ground, the wicketkeeper-batsman was going back to the tent after finishing his batting and suddenly collapsed. He was quickly rushed to the SSKM hospital where he was declared brought dead. A few years back, another junior Bengal player Aniket Sharma had lost his life collapsing on the field while playing at the Paikpara ground. Ballygunge SC official Shyamal Banerjee said:I cannot believe that Sonu is no more. Sonu was a very talented cricketer. I heard the news in the afternoon. Heard Sonu was playing with his friends because our club did not have any match. I pray to Almighty so that it gives strength to his family to deal with this loss.
